Course description

Harmful sexual behaviours (HSB) can provoke considerable anxiety in parent/carers and porfessionals. This one day course aims to demystify this whole area of work, increase awareness and empower carers and professionals to use transferable skills when manageing children and young people who present with HSB.

The training will provide professionals with a theoretical background about the development of sexual behaviour problems, and guidance on what works. It will also consider the impact on adults who are trying to manage a child or young person displaying HSB.


Training objectives

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course participants will have:

  • An increased confidence in responding to and managing HSB

  • An understanding of the theoretical background to the development of sexual behaviour problems

  • Increased insight into staff support and care.
