Delivering circles of support and accountability to protect communities from sexual harm and sexual reoffending


Guest webinar discusses CoSA in Australia

Guest Webinar: Reintegrating People Who Have Sexually Abused into the Community. Guest Speakers: Kelly Richards & Kieran McCartan

The presence of people who pose a risk to the community has, understandably, been a concern to communities across time, place, and culture. What can communities (and the concerned professionals within them) do to best reduce the likelihood of harm? In which directions does the evidence point?

This webinar conversation reviews Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA) as applied in Australia. It features how this approach to community reintegration can be useful, even in times of crisis, such as in the current pandemic. Presenters will discuss the importance of cultural mentoring in Australia, with implications for other areas around the world. They then discuss the attitudes and beliefs of those who have been sexually victimized towards community reintegration.
