For all care practitioners, it is vital to be able to identify and understand the signs of healthy and inappropriate sexual development.
The emphasis of this training course, for those caring for a child who has been sexually abused, is placed on positive sexual development and behaviours.
We recognise that all children and young people develop at their own rate, therefore, our course concentrates on ensuring that regardless of the age of a child, the social care professional can advise on keeping every child safe. It also covers being able to spot worrying signs and know what action to take if sexual abuse is identified.
It is essential for everyone working with children and young people to understand the process of sexual development and the impact of child sexual abuse.
This course explains how to work effectively to promote healthy sexual development and also enables learners to build the confidence and skills to manage issues around sexual abuse.
