Supervising individuals who have sexually offended is an essential element of a comprehensive  approach to reducing and preventing sexual violence.  Such supervision strategies must be  evidence‐informed, collaborative, and responsive to survivors’ rights, needs, and interests.  The  Center for Sex Offender Management (CSOM), the National Sexual Violence Resource Center  (NSVRC) and the Resource Sharing Project (RSP), with support from the Office on Violence Against  Women (OVW), have embarked on a partnership aimed at increasing understanding and practical  application of a victim‐centered approach to supervising these individuals.  As part of the initiative,  this webinar series is designed to address a variety of information needs identified by victim  advocates and supervision officers, but other stakeholders with an interest in learning about these  issues are welcome to participate.
