Introduction to Harmful Sexual Behaviour
Abstract and Bios
Harmful sexual behaviour can cause anxiety amongst adults who may be working with, or caring for, a child who is engaging in sexual behaviour that may not be developmentally appropriate and may be harmful to themselves or others. How do we recognise if a sexual behaviour is something to worry about? How do we address it? When is it time to refer to specialist services?
This basic introductory event is for anyone working with children and young people including teachers, professionals, volunteers, students or others who may have an interest in increasing their knowledge about harmful sexual behaviour (HSB). Attendees will be familiarised with the definition of HSB, introduce the pathways into HSB and understand how to recognise when behaviour might be inappropriate, problematic or harmful and how to respond appropriately. This event may form a basis to identifying ongoing training needs.
