Therapeutic work with children and young people suffering child sexual abuse and exploitation

THURSDAY 10th FEBRUARY 2022

VIRTUAL, Online

This Masterclass programme, facilitated by Dr Arnon Bentovim and Carol Jolliffe, will help practitioners working in social care, health, education and youth justice to deliver effective therapeutic work with children subject to sexual abuse and exploitation. The approach recognises that sexual abuse and exploitation occur in a context of significant adversity, and is based in Trauma Informed Practice which recognises common responses to adversity in childhood are traumatic, and such responses in association with a variety of social, psychological and genetic influences can trigger an extensive set of complex overlapping physical, behavioural and mental health responses.
