Judge John E. Henriksen of the Family Court was the host judge for a seminar about “Understanding and Responding to the Sexual Behavior of Adolescents” held in April 2008 by the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, of which Judge Henriksen is a member.  The key speaker was Dr. Robert Kinscherff, Esquire, who is the Director of Clinical Services for Easter Seals in New Hampshire.  Dr. Kinscherff’s multidisciplinary presentation was enjoyed by over 130 participants composed of Family Court Judges, Children’s Department heads and workers, state and private social workers and clinicians, CASA volunteers, police officers, nurses, attorneys, and school representatives. Dr. Kinscherff, a forensic psychologist and attorney who holds teaching appointments at Harvard Medical School, Boston University School of Law, and Massachusetts School of Psychology, is a leading authority and speaks nationwide on the evaluation and treatment of juvenile sex offenders.
