The Counseling and Psychotherapy Center is an Equal Opportunity Employer and Prohibits Discrimination and Harassment of any kind. We are committed to equal employment opportunity for all employees and provide a work environment free of discrimination and harassment. All employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, merit and business need.
For over 30 years respectively, the directors of The Counseling & Psychotherapy Center, Inc. have been working with convicted sex offenders to develop a community based treatment and management program of the highest quality. Over the years clinicians and community corrections personnel have responded to the combination of criminal justice and clinical perspectives within our organization. This has enabled us to attract some of the most talented and experienced clinical and criminal justice staff in the field to work with us on our mission to reduce sexual victimization.
The containment approach starts in our own house. Our Board of Directors is comprised of three licensed clinical professionals specializing in the treatment of sex offenders. Our fourth director, who is responsible for the agency's operations, has held several key positions in the Department of Corrections in his home state of Massachusetts, including: Commissioner of Community Corrections, Executive Director of the Parole Board and inaugural chair of the Sex Offender Registry Board. These dual perspectives are evident in the CPC treatment and management program beginning with our next generation Containment model which includes not only the traditional three elements of Supervision, Treatment and Polygraph, but a fourth equally important element: the Victim Advocate. We are proactive in integrating stakeholders into the containment process by assigning an area coordinator to accomplish that goal in each geographic area.
Our clinicians are experts in this field and have learned how to support parole and probation in their supervision and decision-making regarding the high-risk sex offenders in the community. As an agency we have made a substantial investment in educating our clinical professionals and providing them with ongoing training and weekly supervision. This proactive approach to training and supervising our staff helps to eliminate the biases clinicians develop while working closely with individual offenders. CPC has enjoyed tremendous growth in our programs due to the comprehensiveness and quality of our treatment program and offender management services and our ability to provide them at a price that makes them accessible to the agencies and offenders that need them. An exciting phenomenon for us is that our programs have not only grown geographically but they have grown vertically. That means that we can treat the same offender clientele through different layers of the criminal justice system. We have programs in state and county correctional institutions which flow into transitional programming and on into community based management and treatment. Each additional layer in the vertical system improves the safety outcome.
