  • Sexual behaviour problems and sexual assault disclosures among children aged 6 to 12 in school setting
    object(Course)#2945 (12) { ["id"]=> string(3) "107" ["title"]=> string(102) "Sexual behaviour problems and sexual assault disclosures among children aged 6 to 12 in school setting" ["description"]=> string(520) "

    This training offers content and tools that will allow elementary school staff to improve their knowledge and skills when they face a student having sexualized behaviors or when a child discloses a situation of sexual violence. Although in most cases, the school’s professionals will provide follow-up, it is still essential to know how to welcome the child's disclosure and to support him adequately, then refer him, when the situation requires it.

  • Managing sexual behaviour in children – Copie

    Young people learn to deal with their life experiences—positive or negative—in a variety of ways, and respond to them in different ways. These may include some problem behaviours, including sexual behaviour problems (SBPs). The available evidence suggests that children with SBPs are not at high risk of becoming future sexual abusers when they participate in treatment to reduce SBPs.Based on clinical cases, participants will be asked to discuss the best interventions to implement for the management of SBPs.

    Learners will be able to use concepts related to the management of sexual behaviour problems (SBPs) to:

    • Discuss with the child and those around him about his SBPs
    • Establish rules with him to manage his SBPs

    The sexual assault experienced by a child or adolescent can have many consequences, the nature and intensity of which can vary from one young person to the next and seriously compromise his or her life trajectory. It is essential that professionals who work with young victims know the symptoms and are able to understand the consequences for these children and adolescents, according to the different profiles, in order to adequately assess their needs and guide subsequent interventions.
