Child sexual abuse is a difficult topic. If you find yourself triggered by any of the website’s content, please stop and take the time you need to talk with someone to get support. If you need help now, please contact one of these resources today.

Most children with problematic sexual behaviors will grow into healthy adults, especially if they receive early and effective interventions. Given the recent legislation which decriminalized these behaviors for children under the age of 12, Massachusetts has a unique opportunity to address these behaviors with a new pilot program. To help launch this pilot program, MACA and MASOC held a series of five free webinars to increase understanding about Problematic Sexual Behaviors and how to effectively intervene. You can view each of these webinars here.
