DESCRIPTION : This training will introduce participants to behavioral issues, in particular sexualized behaviors, pertinent to child sexual abuse. We will explore possible causes of this behavior and what part these behaviors play in the assessment of child sexual abuse. We will focus on a variety of issues experienced by sexually abused and sexually traumatized children, including their victimization, vulnerability and the impact these traumatic experiences have on them. Case planning strategies will be discussed to assess the family to determine if they will be able to deal with these behaviors and protect this child, as well as, other children in the home.


  • Participants will be able to recognize concerning behaviors in sexually abused and sexually traumatized children.

  • Participants will understand the experiences of sexually abused and traumatized children.

  • Participants will learn case planning strategies to assess families and environments to assist in determining whether or not abused and traumatized children can be adequately protected.

TARGET AUDIENCE: Child Welfare professionals who work with child sexual abuse cases
