Turn the Page Overcoming harmful sexual behaviour

Turn the Page helps children and young people overcome feelings that have made them harm another child sexually.

We see boys and girls aged 4 to 17 and talk about ways to avoid harmful sexual behaviour. We do activities like playing games or storytelling together.

We talk about their strengths, to help them feel better about themselves and learn to handle problems positively.

We help their family so everyone can move on from the harmful sexual behaviour together.
