Awareness of Harmful Sexual Behaviour Foundation Course

23rd June 2022 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm BST


Target audience

This course is targeted at caseworkers who are new to this area of work, youth workers, social care staff and foster carers who care for children and young people who have engaged in harmful sexual behaviour (HSB).

Due to the subject matter, a safe space in which to undertake this training with minimal interruptions, where possible, is required. This is pertinent to those working from home, particularly with children present.

 Course Aim

HSB can provoke considerable anxiety in parent/carers and professionals. This one day course aims to demystify this whole area of work, increase awareness and empower carers and professionals to use transferable skills when managing 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.

Learning Outcomes

  • 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
