Although most parents would wish otherwise, sexual development occurs across childhood. Friendship, relationships, communication, nurturance, and intimacy are challenging to manage well. Children’s easy access to technology has further complicated children’s behavior and protective responses. The presenters for this web conference will discuss typical sexual development and problematic sexual behavior of children. Effective strategies to prevent and respond children to support healthy relationship and development will be discussed. They will also discuss new training and other resources recently developed and available.
This web conference is part of PreventConnect’s #PowerInPrevention: Ending Child Sexual Abuse Web Conference Series. You can find recordings, materials and resources for the 27 web conferences from 2012-2017 here.
