  • Be rewarded with a promotion and significant pay-rise on completion of your registration.
  • Gain forensic exposure, working, assessing and delivering programs directly to offenders within a prison environment.
  • Ongoing access to funded clinical supervision to assist you in gaining full registration.
  • Receive 11 weeks of specialised interactive and practical training within a forensic environment.
  • Corrections Victoria is recruiting for their new intake of clinicians within their Offending Behaviour Programs (OBP) team.


Our objective:

To change the way our assigned offender's think, work with the clinician team to discover possible causes of how an offender's behaviour began; work with offenders to realise different approaches, mechanisms, and thinking patterns; reduce the risk of re-offending; rehabilitate offenders as part of our community; protect our community today and for future generations.

Offending Behaviour Programs (OBP) focus on reducing an offender's risk of re-offending. OBP makes a direct positive impact on the safety of the Victorian community. OBP uses interventions to reduce violence, to inspire motivation to change, to improve emotion management and to address other offence-related topics.
