Overview of Treatment for Children Impacted by Problematic Sexual Behavior of Other Youth
February 25, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EST
About This Webinar:
When a child is sexually abused by a youngster exhibiting Problematic Sexual Behaviors (PSB), the child and the child’s nonoffending caregiver could benefit from Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). To best support the family, it is important to facilitate the engagement of both the caregiver and the child in treatment and encourage their gradual participation in skill-building and trauma-processing therapeutic activities.
This webinar provides an overview of treatment for caregivers and children impacted by the Problematic Sexual Behavior (PSB) of other youth using a Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) framework. Dr. Deblinger focuses on the sequela for the impacted child and the caregiver. Information and qualities of evidence-based treatment for the family are also addressed.
By the end of this webinar, attendees will:
Understand when and why treatment for children impacted by the PSB of other youth may be important
Have a general understanding of the application of TF-CBT with this population
Receive overview information about the PRACTICE components of TF-CBT and how they are applied to this population
