We have informal meetings and a nice
balance of attendees, with both juvenile and adult treatment providers, from
outpatient, residential, and forensic settings. We have probation officers,
polygraphers and attorneys attending. At each meeting we first discuss legal
and media information from members, and update members on CCOSO board issues.
Issues range from new legislation to local politics. Following this we have
presentations to members and will be offering CEUs. Recent topics have been: a
review of the incest recidivism literature, residential treatment of adolescent
sex offenders, and an internet safety presentation typically given to parents
by a county probation officer.
