Abstract

[Providing effective organisational support to staff working therapeutically with those convicted of sexual offences is a complex business. It still seems to be the case that little attention is given to the emotional and psychological needs of staff, and what is in place tends to be reactive rather than proactive. This chapter will offer a brief overview of the current literature regarding the well-being of treatment providers. It will also outline the key challenges in providing a support infrastructure that is both robust enough to be widely applicable, whilst flexible enough to accommodate the very wide ranging individual differences and needs amongst therapists. The chapter will conclude with recommendations for a comprehensive strategy to address the well-being of treatment providers from recruitment to retirement, ensuring that they don’t just survive the journey, but thrive!]
