Professionals and parents continue to use myths and misunderstanding as the base of decisions on problematic and illegal sexual behavior of children and adolescents. Adults worry about addressing sexual topics and yet youth continue to be inundated with graphic sexual images and messages. We need to better equip professionals and parents to understand and support healthy sexual development and to identify problematic sexual behavior early and intervene with all children and caregivers impacted. After attending the 2022 NSSBY you will leave being able to more effectively identify, monitor, prevent, educate, and intervene to address sexual behavior of youth . . . . And be a VOICE not an echo.
Symposium Goal:To equip professionals with the understanding and skills to support healthy sexual development and to identify problematic sexual behavior early and intervene effectively. Our shared goal with you is to keep youth safe and healthy by effectively identifying, monitoring, preventing, education, and intervening to address problematic sexual behavior of youth.
Target Audience:Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Social Workers, Counselors, Marriage/Family Therapists, Physicians, Nurses, Juvenile Justice and Court Professionals, Law Enforcement, Judicial and Family Court Judges, and Allied Professionals who work with youth to promote health sexual development and address problematic sexual behavior.
