Dr. Charles A. Flinton has been engaged in research, assessment, and treatment of child abuse since 1986. Since 1992, his work has focused on assessing and treating sexual offenders. His work includes consulting on the management of sexual offenders with various local and national organizations, including the Center on Sex Offender Management (CSOM), Generation 5, the National Organization of Women (NOW), and the California Sexual Offender Management Board (CASOMB). In 2004, he was appointed Co-Chair of the San Francisco Sex Offender Management Alliance (SFSOMA) by the San Francisco's Mayor's Office. In 2006, Dr. Flinton co-authored, "Engaging Resistance," a book that explores the manner in which sexual offenders resist change and how this resistance both mirrors and is facilitated by treatment providers, the criminal justice/child welfare systems, and society. In 2008, he founded the San Francisco Forensic Institute, a state-of-the-art forensic psychological assessment center. In 2010, as chair of the Adult Standards Committee of the California Coalition on Sexual Offending, he was the primary author for the “Guidelines and Best Practices: Adult Male Sex Offender Treatment.” Most recently, he co-founded the Blue Rock Institute, an organization aimed to prevent sexual abuse through early intervention and education. He is currently completing a manuscript on “The Institutionalization and De- Institutionalization of Sexual Offenders: A management and treatment planning guide for sex offender community reintegration.”
Cynthia Rinker is a licensed Marriage and Family therapist who has spent the last 25 years working with various populations in the mental health field. She has worked in residential facilities for emotionally disturbed children and for adults with severe mental health diagnoses, and in a battered women’s shelter with women and their children. For 13 years, she worked in Child Welfare as a child welfare worker, supervisor, and program manager. Beginning in 2009, she returned to direct service providing therapy primarily with sexual offenders. After working in systems that only reacted to things that have already happened, she became interested in prevention. The scope of her practice then expanded to include people who were struggling with problematic sexual behavior that were not (yet) involved in the criminal justice system.
We Celebrate & Support Diversity
We seek and support women and minority presenters, and topics that are particularly socially-relevant and progressive. It's time to shake up the world of Continuing Ed and add more diversity to the mix.
