Sex crimes – every parent’s worst nightmare, every woman’s worry when she’s out at night, and men, well, they just don’t want to talk about it. Can they be prevented? Can sexual offenders be treated and cured? Come and hear about the latest advancements in treatment from world renowned Forensic Neuropsychiatrist Dr Paul Fedoroff, Director of the Sexual Behaviours Clinic and the Integrated Forensic Program at the Royal Ottawa Hospital. Dr Fedoroff is Chair of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law’s (AAPL) Committee on Sex Offenders and Chair of the University of Ottawa Forensic Division. Bringing a community perspective to the issue will be Steve Sullivan, Executive Director of Ottawa Victim Services, and previously Canada’s first Federal Ombudsman for Victims of Crime. Completing the respondent panel is Susan Love, Project Coordinator for Circles of Support and Accountability, a program which engages volunteers to work directly with former sex offenders.
Panellists’ remarks will be in English only. Questions will be encouraged in both official languages.
