About This Webinar:

When a child is sexually abused by a youngster exhibiting Problematic Sexual Behaviors (PSB), the child and the child’s nonoffending caregiver could benefit from Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). To best support the family, it is important to facilitate the engagement of both the caregiver and the child in treatment and encourage their gradual participation in skill-building and trauma processing therapeutic activities.

This webinar provides an overview of treatment for caregivers and children impacted by the Problematic Sexual Behavior (PSB) of other youth using a Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) framework. Dr. Deblinger focuses on the sequela for the impacted child and the caregiver. Information and qualities of evidence-based treatment for the family are also addressed.

  2. I was able to watch the Zoom training this morning on the Overview of Treatment for Children Impacted by Problematic Sexual Behavior of Other Youth. I was having some glitching toward the end when the speaker was talking about the how art work from child survivors were being used. I could still hear the training, but I did not get the full information on how to access the quiz for the CEU’s. Could I please get information on completing the quiz for the CEU’s.
    Thank you in advance.
