Course description

This course is targeted at experienced professionals who are working with adolescents with harmful sexual behaviours (HSB). This includes practitioners in Social Care, Youth Offending and Specialist HSB Providers.

Participants should have a basic understanding of harmful sexual behaviours, either gained through attendance at our foundation courses or through relevant practice experience. In addition, participants also need to have practice experience of complex assessments generally and ideally some experience of assessments of sexual behaviours.

Training objectives

This two-day course aims to develop practice confidence and competence in completing an AIM3 Assessment with a young person. This training provides the practitioner with skills in analyzing harmful sexual behaviour to create profiles of risk and need and develop through case formulation, effective safety plans.

Competency Requirement
Please note: We have introduced a competency requirement for this course, to increase the quality of assessments undertaken and improve the impact on outcomes for young people. Participants will be expected to complete a case study at the end of the course, to demonstrate their understanding of the AIM3 model and their potential ability to implement their learning from the course into practice. If successful, the participants will then be certified as competent and approved by AIM to use the AIM3 model. Post course, quality assurance about how AIM3 is used in practice should be provided through the practitioners’ line management.
