Treating Child Sexual Abuse

Children with sexual behavior problems (SBP) and offending behavior is a widespread issue which is often misinterpreted, avoided and denied.

The ability to decipher problematic sexual behavior and distinguish it from normative sexuality will be taught in a clear-cut manner as well as the principles of assessment and risk evaluation. The etiology of SBP as being impacted and contributing to family dynamics will be described and explored. This course is intended to inform the practice of any therapist working both with children and adolescents as well as adults as this phenomenon can manifest itself both in the present and as a part of a client’s history.

Finally, interventions on an individual, family and systemic level will be presented along with case vignettes.
