Offender Programs

Sexual Offender Risk Management Program

The Sex Offender Risk Management Program is a comprehensive approach to treating and monitoring sexual offenders in the Yukon Territory. It combines cognitive behavioral treatment with a monitoring and supervision component in order to minimize the risk of re-offence. Assessment, individual and group-treatment are all part of the program. Services are also provided to developmentally delayed and FAS/FAE clients. Long term group treatment coupled with external controls is the preferred treatment approach.

Spousal Abuse Program

The Spousal Abuse Program provides individual and group treatment to persons who have been or are abusive in their intimate relationship. The treatment program is cognitive behavioral and psycho-educational in design. Group treatment is the preferred treatment and groups run regularly for ten-week periods throughout the year. The program accepts court mandated and voluntary clients.
