The fee is $10 for non-members, cash or check only.

This year’s training series focuses on different therapeutic interventions and determining which approach may be best for your clients. The series continues with discussing the complex issue of children with problematic sexual behavior and recommendations for treatment. Often there is confusion about when a child’s sexual behavior is problematic and how we need to respond. The training will include information on comparing/contrasting atypical and normative sexual behaviors, identifying the scope of sexual behavior problems in children and youth, dispelling popular myths about this population, relevant research literature, and best practices and treatment options for children and caregivers.
