Research suggests that 25 per cent of all cases of child sexual abuse in the family involve a perpetrator under the age of 18. Research also shows that 82.7% of child victims who were abused by a peer didn’t tell anyone about the abuse. Professionals and carers must ensure they have the knowledge to see the signs and take appropriate action.  Core content includes differentiating between age expected and harmful sexual behaviours, exploring pathways to harmful sexual behaviours, ‘sexting’, peer abuse and abuse within the family.
The Lucy Faithfull Foundation is a child protection charity. For over 25 years, we have used our wealth of child sexual abuse knowledge – including our understanding of abuser behaviour and prevention theory and practice – to deliver targeted evidence-based interventions that keep children safe.  An expert team of ex-child protection police officers, former probation officers, social workers, health and education staff, and psychologists and counsellors, means that they have the skills and knowledge from a wide range of disciplines.
Aims and objectives:
  • Recognise common factors which may contribute to HSB.
  • What to consider in identifying HSB in young people.
  • Explore developmental processes during adolescence.
  • Know how to manage & respond to immediate risks.
