With the wide scope of problematic sexual abuse of children and the amount of media attention it receives, it is not unusual for Teachers and Early Childhood Educators to witness a child exibiting sexual behaviour, and to become alarmed.

Primary Case Providers, Teachers and Early Childhood Educators may be the first professional that parents contact with regards to concerns with their child’s sexual behaviour. It is imperative that professionals understand childhood sexuality and respond appropriately when confronted with child sexual behaviours. Whilst there is limited literature or evidence-based research of normal sexual development, guidelines have been identified to describe normal child sexual behaviours, age specific behaviours and behaviours that are of concern.

The NESA endorsed workshop will assist teachers and school staff to:

  • Explore the issues of sexual development and sexual problematic behaviours;
  • Develop strategies to manage challenging behaviour and ensure students’ wellbeing and safety;
  • Use verbal and non-verbal communication to respond effectively to inappropriate behaviours;
  • Understand the requirements to comply with legislative, administrative and organisational policies and processes.

 

Who should attend this workshop?

Recommended for NSW Proficient Early Childhood Educators and Teachers Pre-K to 6.

CARA House

As a centre for resilience and recovery, Cara House welcomes children, families, adults and professionals whose lives have been touched by trauma whether through their own experiences or through their work. Cara House is a safe place of healing and growth, steeped in a rich tradition of connection and hope.

Cara House practices honour the belief that children and young people who have experienced abuse are greater than the sum of the abuse they have been subjected to. They are full of potential and their creative sparks are waiting to be ignited by those who care.

Cara House is set in a comfortable cottage-styled house that supports recovery and relationship.  Practitioners are aware that trauma is experienced through the senses, body, mind and spirit therefore, journeys to resilience and recovery are personal and are aided by resources, interests, strengths, relationships and community networks. Our highly skilled practitioners are all trauma trained and use a combination of creative and traditional therapies to support clients on their path to healing.
