It also develops programs for the management and rehabilitation of prisoners and the community based supervision of offenders.
CV is committed to contributing to a safer community through the delivery of evidence based offence specific and offence related group based interventions to reduce reoffending among sexual, violent and general offenders.
CV has an expanding clinical workforce responsible for delivering offence specific interventions to sex offenders and violent offenders across prisons, community correctional services, and post-sentence supervision scheme orders.
About the role
CV has recently created a new senior technical position as Clinical Director, based at 121 Exhibition Street, Melbourne.
The introduction of a Clinical Director role to the CV senior management team recognises the importance of clinical leadership, professional development and support of our clinical workforce, and the opportunity that corrections service delivery and program data provide to enhance the knowledge base of how to effect behaviour change in offending populations.
