Children with Problematic Sexual Behaviors in a Digital Age: Who are they and how can we help?
January 31, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Children with problematic sexual behavior are a heterogeneous group who typically engage in behaviors with siblings or close relatives. Unfortunately, these children and their families are typically divided among treatment agencies, systems, and ultimately, from one another, all of which hinders the success of treatment and healing for the family as a whole. Designed for professionals from a variety of disciplines (social work, law enforcement, juvenile justice, mental health), this presentation will provide research-based information on children with problematic sexual behavior, implications of technology on sexual behaviors, and strategies for safety planning and placement decisions in cases of children and young people who have demonstrated harmful sexual behavior. Example cases and details will be used throughout the presentation to assist with practical understanding and invite reflection.
The Center on Child Abuse and Neglect would like to invite all professionals in the field of child maltreatment to attend one or more of our virtual training events. Sponsored by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, the Children’s Justice Act Task Force, and the Center on Child Abuse and Neglect, these trainings are free of charge and focus on topics identified through a survey distributed to child maltreatment professionals across the state. CEU’s will be provided for these trainings, including for CLEET, LPC’s and LMFT’s, attorneys, psychology and social work. Enrollment for all three regional trainings is now underway. You can register via the link below:
Based on survey results, the topics covered include Children with Problematic Sexual Behavior, Investigation of Sexual Abuse, and Domestic Violence. Each training will be held virtually (via zoom), from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, with a 1 hour break for lunch and additional breaks in the morning and afternoon.
Attendees are welcome to register for multiple events.
