Child sexual abuse can be a very tough topic to discuss. However, it is very important when preparing families and professionals with strategies to keep kids safe and thriving during childhood and youth.

In this webinar Dr. Shelly Martin, a child abuse pediatrician and US Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, will review and explore normal, concerning, and problematic sexualized behaviors that children may display. Additionally, various factors associated with children’s sexualized behaviors will be identified to assist clinicians in understanding appropriate assessment and disclosure processes involved when problematic symptoms are present.

  2. Hi Diane, Social Work CEUs are available through the UT Austin Steve Hicks School of Social Work.

    However, participants are encouraged to check with their states’ latest licensing rules to confirm reciprocity and CEU rules. Also, all of our programming (webinars, podcasts, virtual conferences) provide a certain number of Free CEUs. Please let us know if you have any more issues. Thanks!

  3. I am unable to join the webinar on May 22, 2019, due to a schedule change at work. Will there be another opportunity?

  4. I am having difficulty finding free social work webinars (and other media) productions on your website. The only problem is it is impossible to tell if the CEUs are accepted by individual states and/Or NASW. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
