Course Objectives

View the Training Brochure for this class
Interviewing the Sexual Deviant is a training program to aid interviewers in the understanding of sexual behavior. The course will also assist the interviewer in understanding the different types of sexual paraphilias and typologies of a sex offender.

Interviewing the Sexual Deviant is a training program that will assist the interviewer in understanding what sexual deviance is as well as how this deviant behavior begins. The course will also explore why individuals become involved in sexual deviance and who is at risk of becoming a potential victim.

Interviewing the Sexual Deviant is a training program that will look and explore the current research which is now being conducted. The course will also discuss current treatment programs that work with convicted sex offenders. These treatment programs work in conjunction with probation/parole agencies in an attempt to better monitor and control sexual deviant behavior.

Interviewing the Sexual Deviant is a training program that will identify and discuss the following areas:

The Stress Response States - Subjects under stress of deception during an interview tend to generate identifiable responses such as anger, denial, bargaining, depression and acceptance. These responses to stress can be controlled in order to get the most information from the interview.

The Primary Dominant Personalities - The identification of personalities regarding Introverts and Extraverts. The importance of understanding the difference between the Suspect and the Interviewer is necessary in order to conduct a proper interview. This will enable the Interviewer to better understand the how and why individuals become involved in sexual deviant behavior.

Why Attend:
Understanding behavior which involves sexual deviance is a specialized field. The discipline of interviewing both suspects and victims is a sensitive issue and has evolved over the last few years. In order to successfully obtain pertain and relevant information about sex crimes, it has become imperative for any Interviewer to learn and understand this type of behavior.

Over the last few years, clinical psychologists and therapists have been able to successfully treat convicted sex offenders. The methodology employed by these treatment centers clearly show that the rate of recidivism has gone down remarkably.

It has been documented that individuals involved in sexual deviant behavior have other undisclosed sexual behaviors. Many of them also have a number of victims that remain unidentified.

This course has been designed to inform and educate individuals who are responsible for conducting these types of interviews and investigations. The goal is to help the Interviewer in understanding sexual deviant behavior that in the past has been misunderstood.

During this course of instruction, real videos of convicted sex offenders will be used for training purposes. It should be noted that since these training tapes are real in nature some of the material will be sensitive in nature.
