Women Against Registry hosts this informative podcast by Dr. Liam Marshall. He discusses various models for treatment of offenders - both those found to be successful AND unsuccessful. He speaks about individualized treatment, awareness of over treatment, the importance of the therapist/patient relationship, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and a focus on Future Life. He argues that punishment/shaming is not successful in treatment and focuses on the Good Lives Model, making the point that healthy, happy people do not commit offences against others.
