Indigenous sexual offending program

 

Overview

Run by Queensland Corrective Services, the Indigenous sexual offending program is a program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander offenders who have committed one or several sexual offences. The program uses a cognitive behavioural approach to change antisocial attitudes and behaviour, and promotes a holistic pro-social lifestyle with the aim of assisting offenders to avoid re-offending.

The Indigenous sexual offending program is designed to accommodate cultural, custom and language considerations relevant to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander offenders. The delivery team of the Indigenous sexual offending program includes a cultural advisor who attends group and consults with program staff in order to acknowledge cultural context and inform on culturally sensitive issues. This program can accommodate offenders with moderate and high risk needs. The program is only delivered in a rolling format, so offenders can enter the program when a vacancy occurs.
