"Juvenile Sex Offenders, Sexting, Pornography, and The Law….Oh My!"


Live, Interactive Webinar

May 14th, 2021

8:30 a.m. -4:15 p.m.
6 NBCC/SW CE HOURS  


John “Wes” Wiginton, MS, LPC, CJSOTS

INTRODUCTION:
Introduction: The past two decades have seen a movement toward harsher legal sanctions and lengthy, restrictive treatment programs for sex offenders. This has not only been the case for adults, but also for juveniles who commit sex offenses. The increased length and severity of legal and clinical interventions for juvenile sex offenders appear to have resulted from the false assumption that juvenile sex offenders have more in common with adult sex offenders than with other juvenile delinquents. This assumption continues to influence the treatment and legal interventions applied to juvenile sex offenders. Join us for a great workshop as we learn how to successfully treat juvenile sex offenders.


Learning Objectives Include:
 Defining a juvenile sex offender and subsequent terminology
Explore ethical considerations (ACA, NASW, ATSA) when working with juvenile sex offenders
Define normal, concerning, and very concerning behaviors of offenders
Explore Assessments and outpatient treatment options utilized in Juvenile Sex Offender Treatment   
Discuss how social media and pornography play a role in this population
Define sexting and discuss legal issues with juveniles sexting 
Discuss history of pornography and what is considered pornographic

SCROLL TO BOTTOM TO REGISTER AFTER READING REFUND POLICY


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 



​​REGISTER AT BOTTOM AFTER READING REFUND POLICY​​

​REFUND, CANCELLATION, CERTIFICATE, POSTPONEMENT,  REFUSAL OF SERVICE , ACCOMMODATIONS POLICIES: 

Refunds: If a refund is requested by the participant, a partial refund, minus a $25.00 adminstrative fee will be provided regardless of the time period of when the request is received for all seminars in which the registration fee charged was $70 or more. If the seminar was under $70, customers will be given a refund of 50% of what was charged/paid. Additionally, a credit card fee will be assessed to all refunds, to cover the cost of PayPal and/or Stripe processing charges on credit cards (these fees usually range from 2.2% – 2.9% of the total conference cost depending on PayPal and or Stripe's current algorithm utilized at the time of payment). All cancellations must be in writing, thus emailed to leslie@daretodreamlife.com is preferred. No refunds will be issued if received less than 2 weeks of the event.  Please note if a participant fails to contact us as well as fails to appear for the seminar, no refunds will be issued, nor will attendance of another seminar be allowed. Regarding live webinar events, we do not provide refunds due to the following: (1) Attendee technology problems: It is the responsibility of the webinar attendee to test their computer setup prior to the start of the webinar. If a technical failure at your location (work, home, other locations of your preference) prevents access to the live webinar, you are not eligible for a refund. If the technical problem is due to our error, we will consider issuing a refund.  (2) Attendee email issues: Refunds will not be issued in cases where an attendee did not receive the webinar login instruction email due to issues like restricted emails, bounced emails, or any other system issues. It is the attendee’s responsibility to contact us if they don’t receive the required login information at least 24 hours prior to the start time of the webinar. (3) No shows: Attendees who do not participate in the live webinar will not be entitled to a refund.

Cancellations:  If Leslie Phillips Seminars® cancels a seminar, a full refund will be given. Leslie Phillips Seminars® reserves the right to cancel any seminar due to low enrollment. 

Postponements: At times, postponing a seminar may be unavoidable (such as illness of a presenter, family tragedy, etc). If a seminar is postponed, all registered will have the option to attend the seminar on the newly scheduled date, or have their registration transferred to another seminar of their choice within the next 6 months. No refunds will be given. If a seminar is not attended within that 6 month period, attendance of another seminar is forfeited. 

Certificates: If a customer loses, misplaces, or otherwise cannot find their certificate that was originally provided which includes incidents of email returns or non-responses due to supplying us with an incorrect email address at the time of registration and attendance of webinars, Leslie Phillips Seminars® will provide an additional certificate electronically with an administrative charge of $30.00. This includes if a customer contacts us to state they did not receive their certificate by email and we can provide documentation that it was sent to the email address provided.  In this instance, Customers may utilize the buy it now option on our website at www.daretodreamlife.com or contact leslie@daretodreamlife.com to pay by check.

ADDITIONAL RESEARCH FEE: While we understand that mishaps occur, unfortunately we have received an increase in customers contacting us, stating they know they attended a seminar, but do not know the date or the title of the seminar. In this instance, they are requesting staff to look through records for large spans of time, often including an entire year or more, to determine their attendance and then create and send certificates. This creates additional time for staff, outside of the norm, when a customer does not know the date and/or title of the seminar. Therefore, an additional fee of $20.00 will be charged in cases such as these and will be due BEFORE staff begin this review process.  
2.   If a customer requests a certificate to be mailed through the United States Postal Service, Leslie Phillips Seminars ® will mail the certificate with an administrative charge of $40.00. Customers may utilize the buy it now option on our website at www.daretodreamlife.com or contact leslie@daretodreamlife.com to pay by check.
​Certificates: It is the policy and procedure of Leslie Phillips Seminars® to provide our customers with their certificate at the end of each seminar.  Because we provide this in person, at the conclusion of all seminars, the following policy is adhered to:
1.     If a customer loses, misplaces, fails to get their certificate before leaving for the day, or otherwise cannot find their certificate that was originally provided at their seminar, Leslie Phillips Seminars® will provide an additional certificate electronically with an administrative charge of $30.00.  Customers may utilize the buy it now option on our website at www.daretodreamlife.com or contact leslie@daretodreamlife.com to pay by check. 
2.   If a customer requests a certificate to be mailed through the United States Postal Service, Leslie Phillips Seminars ® will mail the certificate with an administrative charge of $40.00. Customers may utilize the buy it now option on our website at www.daretodreamlife.com or contact leslie@daretodreamlife.com to pay by check.
