This course has provided excellently delivered superb materials, which are extremely interesting and invaluable in my daily working with sex offenders and overall risk assessments. I would highly recommend that all colleagues working with sex offenders attend this course!”
Very professional presentation that affords invaluable insight to anyone working in this field
I thought it was brilliant, would definitely recommend
Very informative and relevant to my role
Learnt so much, excellent
“As I don’t work with offenders this course is helpful to me working with survivors who will often question their perpetrator’s behaviour.”
“Excellent presentation style – easy and good flow, strong content and very insightful real cases. Video medium really powerful. Calming use of subtle humour where appropriate.”
“Two full days of very informative material using lots of training aids and allowing candidates full interaction and participation. I personally found the spiral grids fascinating allowing the candidate to make informed decisions and start a baseline profile.”
“I am a retired police officer and attended several courses run by Joe Sullivan in my police career. Without doubt the learning from these greatly assisted my role as a Senior Investigating Officer, it gave me greater understanding of the complexity of offenders and allowed me to develop effective strategies. I have just undertaken the Interviewing course to refresh my knowledge as I have moved into a new career. It is without doubt that I can say the latest course has renewed my enthusiasm and knowledge of this area, these are transferable skills which I will be using in the future. If anyone is considering attending the latest Mentor courses having completed them previously, I can without hesitation say, you will learn new things and reinvigorate learning from previous courses.”
"One of the most insightful courses I have attended. I think it is about context and having the opportunity to reflect is the important thing.”
“This was a superb course for eye opening and challenging organisations to be more robust and less naïve in their risk assessments and recruitment/ retention policies. It was useful to me as it reinforced how critical our recommendations and guidance to clubs is and really why it matters not to accept poor practice…”
Extremely thought provoking. Packed full of information of case studies. Fascinating and disturbing. I feel like I’m leaving here with my eyes wide open.
I think the course should be considered (or elements of the course) as mandatory for all child protection social workers.
This was an outstanding, thought provoking, and informative course.
This course has really helped me understand what I need to know about sex offenders so I can better protect children
One of the best training courses I have attended
Joe was personable, and easy to listen to and relate to.
Would recommend the course to all workers involved in child protection.
Although the course content was gruelling, there was a wealth of information that it would have been difficult to get elsewhere.
