Sexual Behavior in Children - Differentiating Warning Signs from Natural Curiosity

 
Preferred registration deadline: October 5th

3 CEUs

Matt Collins, MSW, LCSW
Adjunct Faculty, Brown School
Clinical Director, Professional Psychotherapy Services

It is natural and expected that children will demonstrate curiosity about their bodies and sexuality. How do we differentiate between healthy curiosity and behaviors that may indicate the child has been mistreated or is otherwise acting out?

This workshop will identify typical behaviors associated with psycho-sexual development in children and teens, helping participants highlight and understand maladaptive behaviors associated with delayed or disturbed psycho-sexual development. We will consider the impact of technology on psycho-sexual growth in children and teens.

Assessment strategies will be presented for working with children with potential problematic psycho-sexual development, as well as treatment approaches for use with children, adolescents and families.

Class size is limited to 45.
