StopSO has introduced a ground-breaking way of reducing sexual offences in the UK, by offering therapy in the community, to people who feel at risk of committing (or who have already committed) a sexual offence. Since inception, StopSO was asked for therapy by over 1200 perpetrators.

This conference will allow you to get a first-hand account of the issues, through presentations from the people who are most involved in sexual offences.  Presenters include: a perpetrator, a survivor, a policeman, comments from family members of perpetrators, and a therapist. Through these conversations and presentations, delegates will get a direct understanding of the struggles and the core issues. We will explore the therapeutic interventions that provided the most effective healing.  

The conference will be of interest to anyone who is interested or working with the criminal justice system, mental health, child protection and exploitation.  This will include (but not be limited to) Members of Parliament, probation officers, social workers, psychotherapists and counsellors, doctors, police, journalists and the general public.

Due to the sensitive nature of the presentations photography will not be allowed, and some presenters will use a pseudonym.
