    August General Meeting


    Date: Friday August 21st, noon-2:00PM


    Topic:   Reducing barriers for children and teens to receive specialized treatment for sexual behavior issues


    Description:  KCSARC (as an organization that provides both legal advocacy as well as treatment) has an insider's view regarding youth who have sexually acted out.   Their staff are concerned over how many of these youth are identified, but ultimately are unable to obtain services to address their treatment needs.  Early intervention is key to preventing future victims. The goal is to brainstorm and create an action plan regarding how to reduce the barriers for these youth and their families to receive services.  KCSARC and Harborview have offered some services to children under 12 (because there are no potential legal issues that would create a conflict with their legal advocacy) but that may be changing.


    One of the primary barriers to getting kids treatment appears to be related to the cost of treatment and the lack of providers who are willing to accept state insurance for payment.   Related to this issue is a  reluctance on the part of community agencies which accept state insurance to offer these services due to a lack of training and experience.   Another issue relates to youth who may have pending legal issues which compete with the family's need to address the issue immediately.  Finally there may be general issues with there not being enough SOTPs trained to work with children and teens.


    We would like to encourage interested stakeholders who work with youth, and especially SOTPs, to attend.  While SOTPs with adult-focused practices may not feel they have useful input, we feel you can offer a unique perspective on how early intervention may have interrupted  the sexual acting out trajectory of their adult clients.


    Discussion Leaders:   KCSARC treatment providers and advocates, Dan Knoepfler (SOTP), invited guests who are stakeholders in this system (to be announced)

    2020 Roger Wolfe Memorial Retreat 

    Location: GoToMeeting virtual platform


    9 CEUs available



    The Annual Roger Wolfe Retreat has long been a favorite for WATSA members, colleagues, and friends.  The Retreat traditionally serves as an opportunity to come together, discuss events and developments in the field, learn from and share experiences with old and new friends, and enjoy good food and camaraderie.


    This year, the Retreat is going virtual for the first time.  We will kick-off on Friday afternoon with a Welcome and Introduction from Holly Coryell, PhD, WATSA President, followed by a presentation on Ancillary and Ethical Considerations during Juvenile Sexual Offense Evaluations from Brent J. Oneal, PhD Dr. Oneal specializes in forensic psychological evaluations for juvenile justice and criminal matters, including adjudicative competencies, mental state defenses, juvenile declination/transfer, and risk assessment (sexual and non-sexual).


    Saturday morning will start with a round-table discussion that will focus on current events, such as the move to telebehavioral health for SOTPs, getting documents from DOC, and the newly reconstituted Sex Offender Policy Board (SOPB).  This session will be facilitated by Robert A. Beattey, JD, MA, PhD, and participation from all attendees is encouraged.  Saturday will conclude with two breakout sessions.  Each lasting an hour and a half, attendees will select the breakout sessions they wish to attend and self-facilitate the discussion.


    We hope you will join the conversation and share your perspectives throughout the two-days with both new and long-time colleagues.
