Children who act out sexually can present a challenging and complex diagnostic picture. This workshop will present a typology of sexual behavior problems in children, contrasting each category to what would be developmentally usual and expected. Implications for placements and treatment planning will be discussed for impulsive, attachment-seeking, neurologically-based, compulsive and exploitative sexual behaviors. We will focus on children in alternative care such as foster care, special school settings, residential treatment centers and inpatient hospitals.

Participants will learn:

  1. To differentiate types of sexual behavior problems based on motivation and history
  2. To make appropriate treatment planning and placement decisions for each type
  3. About the role of past trauma in children with sexual behavior problems
