6/23/2021 - Sexual Development 0-18: Behaviors, Identity, and Trauma

Event Date: 6/23/2021

Research shows that equipping children and caregivers with evidence-based information on sexual development can be preventative in protecting children from specific aspects of childhood sexual abuse. Join the Sexual Assault Center to learn more about child sexual development!

This training will explore the dynamics of childhood sexual development from ages 0 – 18. Audience members will gain tangible tools for communicating sexual development changes to children. We will discuss how traumatic experiences can “flip the switch” and influence sexual development resulting in experiences and behaviors that are commonly misunderstood by professionals working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

Non-offending caregivers are welcome and encouraged to attend!
