Harmful sexual behaviour: seminar programme

A series of sessions to share what we've learnt from working with young people through our National Clinical Assessment and Treatment Service (NCATS)

We're hosting a series of seminars about harmful sexual behaviour for front line social, health care staff; and, anyone working to protect children.

Experts from our National Clinical Assessment and Treatment Service (NCATS) will be sharing their knowledge, learning and experience from working with children and young people with high risk harmful sexual behaviour.

Each seminar will help to increase understanding of sexualised behaviour among young people, exploring the range of behaviours encountered, possible drivers and precedents of the behaviours.
