What is a paraphilic disorder as opposed to a compulsive sexual disorder? Is either disorder considered a mental illness and can people living with these conditions be treated? What happens when a person engages in criminal behavior as the result of the uncontrolled symptoms of these disorders and is chemical castration ever appropriate? Is it possible to divert from the criminal justice system someone accused of a sexual offense? And, following incarceration, can people accused of sexual offenses safely reintegrate into the community? These are just some of the questions we will discuss on NOVEMBER 17, 2021 1:00 - 2:30 (EST) Via Zoom. Join us. RSVP HERE!
