Professor Jill Levenson, who has studied and reported on the impact of the registry upon individuals and their families, will speak during ACSOL’s annual conference on Friday, September 17, at 10 a.m. (Pacific).  The title of her presentation is “Post-Conviction Traumatic Success: Recovery, Resilience and Restoring Hope.”

Levenson is an international expert in the monitoring and treatment of individuals convicted of a sex offense.  She has often criticized sex offender registries which she claims are ineffective as well as residency restrictions. In addition, Levenson has issued a study that debunks the myth that registrants pose a danger to children while trick-or-treating on Halloween.

“We are honored that Professor Levenson has agreed to speak at this year’s conference,” stated ACSOL President Chance Oberstein.  “In her presentation, Professor Levenson will address challenges faced by registrants in their daily lives and how to overcome them.”

Levenson has been a keynoted speaker in conferences held in more than 20 states in the U.S. as well as in the countries of Canada, Mexico, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Australia.  She has co-authored five books about the treatment of sexual abuse and published more than 100 articles on that topic.
