Tuesday, October 11 2016

Caplin Pavilion, Clay Hall, School of Law, University of Virginia, Charlottesville VA

Forensic mental health professionals, probation/parole professionals, corrections professionals,  program planners and policy professionals, graduate students,  researchers and others will be interested in this full-day seminar with expert L. Maaike Helmus PhD, Director of Research with the Global Institute of Forensic Research.  This will be an opportunity to be among the first to hear Dr Helmus on this topic (before the November 2016 ATSA meeting)

Program

This full-day program with expert L. Maiike Helmus PhD will present and discuss ' Static 99R: How to Code, Interpret, and Report Scores Using the New (2016) Manual and Procedures'.  The Static-99R has been the most widely-used and well-researched measure in sex offender risk assessment.  As of Fall 2016 the Static-99 developers are releasing a new manual and risk categories, along with recommendations that users receive updated training on the revised manual from a certified Static-99R trainer.  Dr. Helmus is a certified trainer and co-author of this new manual.  Her presentation will be among the first live trainings to address these 2016 updates.  Her training will be suitable for long-term Static-99R users who are transitioning to the new manual, but also accessible to professionals just learning to use the Static-99R.

Dr Helmus' formal agenda will begin at 9:00AM and conclude at 5:00PM.  Breaks will be offered in the morning and afternoon and there will be a one-hour lunch break (on your own).  Lunch opportunities with a wide variety of cuisines, setting, and prices are available in the nearby Barracks Road Shopping Center, 5 minutes' drive or 10 minutes' walk from the School of Law: http://www.barracksroad.com/merchant-category/food/  Participants may also bring their own lunch to enjoy at the Law School Grounds.  Registration will begin from 8:30AM to receive materials and to enjoy morning coffee while meeting colleagues and getting settled for prompt start at 9:00 AM. 

Faculty

L. Maaike Helmus PhD, Director of Research with Global Institute of Forensic Research, is a thought leader in the areas of sexual offender assessment and treatment.  Dr Helmus received here Doctorate in Psychology from Carleton University in Canada, where she was involved in the development of the Static-99R, STABLE-2007, ACUTE-2007, Static-2002R, BARR-2002R, and RAST.  Winner of the prestigious Governor General's Gold Medal for her work in risk assessment, Dr Helmus has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards from organizations including the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

No faculty, including planning faculty, have disclosed financial relationships with any commercial interests that would conflict with their presentation and no commercial support had been accepted for the program.  With an abundance of care Dr Helmus would like to share that the Static-99R scale  is Crown copyright to the government of Canada and though trainings/services may exist for-profit - which Dr Helmus is a certified trainer to provide - but the scale will always remain free to use. Questions regarding faculty disclosures should be directed to els2e@virginia.edu
