Promoting Positive Pathways for Young People
Improving outcomes for young people and their families
Who is it for?
Our training is suitable for those with no previous knowledge or experience in this area as well as more experienced professionals. It will be of benefit to social workers, police, therapists, education and health professionals, carers, and anyone involved in the care and support of young people and families.
We can also deliver more specialist and in-depth training which covers assessment, intervention, case management and caring for children with harmful sexual behaviours.
How will this help?
Our tailor made training sessions help participants gain the skills to recognise the continuum of sexual behaviour in children and young people. Participants learn how to distinguish between age expected behaviours and those which raise concern. And they are provided with the tools to respond appropriately to young people who exhibit harmful behaviours.
Delivered by experienced practitioners, core content includes differentiating between age expected and harmful sexual behaviours, exploring pathways to harmful sexual behaviours, 'sexting', peer abuse and abuse within the family.
Skilled facilitators use case studies to identify the principles of risk assessment and safety planning. Attachment based practice is promoted throughout the course. Sessions also help participants explore impact and self-care when working with young people who exhibit harmful sexual behaviour.
Using the Good Lives Model participants are provided with the tools to promote positive pathways for children and young people who exhibit harmful sexual behaviour.
