Sexualized Behaviors in Children
with Dr. Gizane Indart
This course will address the complexities and challenges that professionals face when attempting to understand and address many of the sexualized behaviors traumatized children may display. We will begin with a quick overview of what constitutes healthy and expectable sexual behaviors.
The primary focus of the training is on children who have experienced disruptions in healthy sexual development and therefore manifest a wide range of sexualized behaviors, from reactive to problematic and abusive.
Part One will build an understanding of the continuum of sexual behaviors that children display.
Part Two will be an interactive and highly applicable case review and discussion
