Title: The Importance of a Unique Greenlandic Approach to Sexual Offender Assessment and Treatment
This two-hour public lecture will review some of the issues involved when considering how to develop a unique approach to working with sexual abusers in the Greenlandic context. The lecture will examine some of the general international findings regarding assessment and treatment of sexual offenders. But perhaps more importantly, this lecture will focus on how to help develop culturally sensitive programs for reducing sexual violence, while respecting and supporting the needs of victims, offenders, and affected communities in Greenland. Questions and input from the audience will be welcomed as everyone involved in this initiative are looking forward to sharing and learning to discover some of the possible ways to help work together in this area.
