Understanding Child Sexual Abusers Training
A broad and informative overview of child sexual abuse
Who is it for?
Our training will be of interest to all child and public protection professionals, including community and residential settings and those in a role that involves the assessment or treatment of abusers in particular. It will also be of benefit to those working with child victims of sexual abuse or other family members, including Guardians ad Litem and private therapists and counsellors. In addition, housing workers, health workers, community groups, faith groups, prison staff, police and probation officers, social workers, and those who work in approved premises will find it beneficial.
