Annual Spring Meeting
Fairmont Hot Springs
May 4 & 5 2023

 Training commences on Thursday, the 4th, beginning at 8:30am, with Agent Brain Cassidy, Computer Crimes Investigator for DOJ, Dept. of Criminal Investigation, Internet Crimes Unit. Agent Cassidy is also the Commander of the Montana Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force. 


After lunch on Thursday, Chris Nordstrom, SOP Program Manager at Montana State Prison, along with his ICPM Team, will do a brief presentation on the changes in SOP Programming curriculum and policies at MSP, to be followed by our MSOTA Clinical Members Meeting. I also hope to have ATSA Chapter Liaison Elizabeth Griffin participate by Zoom for a portion of our Clinical Members Meeting. 


Lastly the Clinical Meeting will close with a ceremony honoring the 30 plus years of service and dedication of MSOTA's "Founding Fathers", Andy Hudak, Mike Sullivan, Mike Scolatti, and the always quirky Fred Lemons. 


On Friday morning, beginning at 8:30am, Montana Psychotherapist Andrew Laue, LCSW, will present a talk and workshop on the effects of secondary trauma on those who work in the fields associated with sexual offending, including treatment providers, criminal justice, and law enforcement. In 2017, Andy won a National County Attorney Association award for his Secondary Trauma Group with the Missoula County Attorney's Office.


We hope to see all of our MSOTA Members, and our partners in law enforcement and other fields,  at this year's Retreat.
