Problematic Intrafamilial Sexual Behaviors

Problematic Intrafamilial Sexual Behaviors

About this Training

This two-day online, interactive training will follow one family’s journey and increase the participant’s understanding of what problematic sexual behaviors are, where they come from, and how to respond empathetically and in the best interest of all the children.

Please note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this training has been moved to an online format and fees have been waived. Registrants will receive log-in information prior to the event.

The training utilizes an interactive module from the intervention PSB-CBT-A where participants explore common reactions of caregivers and practice the best ways to engage these families and how to offer concrete solutions to address safety concerns within the home. The second day focuses on supporting families as they navigate the system response after a mandated report is made, including planning for reunification if members of the family are separated.

Training Dates

This training will take place during two online sessions: April 28, 2020 and May 5, 2020.

Intended Audience

Professionals that interface with families and respond to problematic sexual behaviors including advocates, forensic interviewers, CAC staff, and child abuse multidisciplinary team members.
