The Importance of Sex Offender Therapy

Deborah O. Day, Psy.D - Tuesday, August 19, 2014

A sex offender is a child or adult who has committed a sex crime. While the nature and categorization of sex crimes can differ by location, a sex offender does not have to have been involved in actual molestation. Therapy for sex offenders is quite different than other types of therapies; it is a comprehensive process with a focus on strategy acquisition that emphasizes preventative measures, personal accountability, and accepting responsibility for harm that occurred. Although sex offenders may never be considered completely cured, Orlando sex offender therapy can greatly reduce the risk of continued offenses.  It will not offer patients any type of amnesty or pardon for the acts they have committed, and it is not meant as a punishment or form of humiliation. The purpose of sex offender therapy is to help patients develop their personal strengths, manage their risks, and make a better life for themselves. The Orlando therapists who perform sex offender therapy usually specialize in adults and young people with sexual behavioral problems. This treatment is extremely effective for most patients. It is possible for a person to change their behavior through specialized methods of treatment. Without such treatment, the behavior will most likely continue indefinitely, as patterns of abuse are very hard to break without the aid of an experienced professional.

The Parenting Coordination Program

Deborah O. Day, Psy.D - Friday, June 06, 2014

For the sake of the children, divorcing parents must continue to communicate with their former spouses in matters of child rearing.  Yet, approximately 20-30% of divorcing parents exhibit high conflict behaviors, creating stress for both adult and child.  Research indicates that unrelenting parental conflict is the single most common cause of poor adjustment in children following a divorce.

Parent Coordination offers divorcing parents a unique service that may be used during the divorce process or years after.  Parents with serious concerns regarding their co-parent may request, through their attorney, the monitoring services of a Parenting Coordinator.  A Parenting Coordinator is a neutral individual working to ensure parental access and protect children from unnecessary stress.

Parenting Coordinators at Psychological Affiliates are licensed psychologists who are trained in child development, mediation, and high conflict.  All Coordinators are trained through the Cooperative Parenting Institute.
