Short Description: 
Sex Offenders & Public Misperceptions

Karen James with Johneen Manno, an Oregon Certified Sex Offender Clinical Therapist, who specializes in the treatment of adjudicated, mandated adult males and females who have been convicted of a sexual offense. Ninety-three percent of Oregon’s prison population return to their communities at some point. Those returning include people convicted of a sex crime. According to the Oregon State Police, there are over 19,000 registered sex offenders in Oregon.  Of these, 4% are highest risk to reoffend and are posted to the state police website. Many people convicted of a sexual offense want to change their behaviors and seek treatment in our communities. Johneen dispels myths and public misperceptions about sex offenders and explains her whole-systems approach to treat such offenders. She’ll tell about the lost opportunity to educate a SE Portland community after the neighborhood’s harsh criticism forced her to move her clinic.
