In collaboration with the Departments of Probation of Westchester and Rockland Counties, MHA operates Adult Sex Offender Programs (ASO). Sex Offender services utilize a particular application of a cognitive behavioral approach, with the goal of preventing future re-offense and promoting positive behavioral change. Services are provided by licensed and specifically trained therapists. Although Sex Offender services are unlike traditional mental health treatment in significant ways, such as limited confidentiality, close collaboration with the Probation Department and community supervision provided by the Department of Probation, MHA’s program retains the professional stance of all of its services which are recovery-oriented and trauma informed. Group work is an important component of Sex Offender Treatment.
