Children with Problematic Sexual Behavior @ Naranja Office @ Kristi House - Naranja Office
Nov 30 @ 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Some children display intrusive, aggressive or coercive sexual behaviors. This is inappropriate and potentially harmful to these children and their peers. Recognizing and responding to sexual behavior problems is important since research suggests a quarter to half of child sexual abuse involves children acting out on other children.   This 2.5-hour awareness training was created based on the evidence-based intervention for children with problematic sexual behavior developed by Dr. Barbara Bonner, Ph.D., Director, and The Center on Child Abuse and Neglect at the University of Oklahoma Children’s Physicians Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics. The presentation includes PowerPoint, Audio, Video and Lecture.

RSVP to Deborah Billings – 305-547-6800 – dbillings@kristihouse.org.

Objectives

  1. Participants will understand and be able to identify the difference between normal sexual development and problematic sexual behaviors.
  2. Participants will articulate signs and symptoms of problematic behavior.
  3. Participants will learn basic skills in creating a positive environment where children understand boundaries, and can promote impulse control, social skills and empathy development
