When is it a concern?

OCTOBER 14 2023 

9am-12:00am CST Live Webinar

3 CE Hours

This presentation focuses on the sexual development of children and adolescents and seeks to educate participants on healthy versus unhealthy sexual expression within these age ranges. Consideration for growth and development are addressed within the presentation as a context for behaviors. Multicultural considerations are also considered in this presentation with an emphasis on how clinicians can support their clients of color.

As mental health providers who work with children and adolescents it is imperative that we understand the nuanced development of sexual behaviors from birth to adulthood. This presentation seeks to educate therapists on healthy versus unhealthy sexual behaviors in children through exploration of the history of the concept of “childhood innocence” as well as considering the impacts of family influence, cultural influence, and multicultural considerations for children. Therapists will discuss appropriate ways to address these concerns as well as how to empower the families they serve.
