Activity Synopsis (ID# 32451) (Hide Synopsis)

Objective(s) To develop new OBPs or update the existing ones as necessary. 
Output/Results The CoE STC introduced the content of the Manual, the principles and methodology behind the programme and the measures to be taken for its successful implementation. The participants found the programme very comprehensive and elaborate. Some participants expressed their doubts as to whether the DGPDH with current capacity would be able to implement this programme successfully. Both the CoE and the DGPDH experts pointed out the need for engagement of more staff in the psycho-social services in the Turkish penitentiary system for the successful implementation of the programme. This programme particularly necessitated individual approach to the inmates rather than a group approach, which in turn necessitated the psycho-social services staff to devote more time to observe and analyse individual behaviour of sex offenders and develop individual treatment programmes for individual cases. The participants suggested further amendments of the Manuals in terms of the scope and the length. The CoE LTC and STC agreed to advise later on the further work that can be done on the programme manuals in terms its scope and length without affecting its purpose.
