Network Of Juveniles Offending Sexually (NOJOS)
The primary aim in juvenile sex-specific treatment is to instill in the youth the knowledge, skills and competencies necessary to develop and implement a positive and healthy identity revolving around personally meaningful ways of meeting their human needs and pursuing their interests. Thus, treatment is focused on factors related to the youth’s developmental trajectory — the causal and maintenance factors that diverted the youth to a pathway to offend.get more info
NOJOS Supports Holistic Treatment
As part of a holistic approach, treatment integrates standard sex-offense-specific treatment components, insight into offense dynamics and choice to offend, building realistic and effective self-regulation strategies and skills, developing a family safety plan, and much more.
Many youth need opportunities to resolve their own childhood victimization with interventions apart from the focus on their sexual misconduct to assist them in resolving trauma, enhancing emotional coping skills, and developing a healthy sexual identity.get more info
