Adults can do much to promote healthy sexual development in prepubescent children. In this training you will: a) be able to distinguish between expected, problematic, and abusive behaviors of children b) be prepared to promote health and prevent perpetration behaviors in children c) be ready to intervene with children to prevent reinforcement of repeated harmful behaviors. You will develop the skills to keep children safe from other children with problematic behaviors and to promote healthy development in all children. This training is for professionals who work with at-risk children, such as residential care staff, therapeutic foster parents, counselors, social workers, educators, early childhood educators, after school staff, and mentors. The information can also be useful for parents, grandparents, and foster parents.
