HSB can provoke considerable anxiety in parent/carers and professionals. This one day course aims to demystify this whole area of work, increase awareness and empower carers and professionals to use transferable skills when managing children and young people who present with HSB.

The training will provide professionals with a theoretical background about the development of sexual behaviour problems, and guidance on what works. It will also consider the impact on adults who are trying to manage a child or young person displaying HSB.
