Addressing Youth with Problematic Sexual Behavior

Resources for CACs, Partners and Caregivers

To achieve their goals of healing, justice, and prevention, CACs have an interest in addressing this issue and serving youth with problematic sexual behaviors (PSBs), their victims, and families.

The process of identifying and responding to PSBs of youth is often fragmented and inconsistent across the country. CACs are leaders in supporting families impacted by child abuse through coordinated multidisciplinary response and care. This uniquely qualifies CACs to coordinate effective interventions for this population. Below is a set of all-new resources for CACs to educate leaders, staff, partners, and caregivers on this crucial issue and to help improve the CAC response to problematic sexual behaviors. 

The National Children’s Alliance partnered with the National Center on the Sexual Behavior of Youth, NCA Youth with Problematic Sexual Behaviors Collaborative Work Group, and Midwest Regional Children’s Advocacy Center in creating resources for Child Advocacy Centers, Partners, and Caregivers addressing youth and children with problematic sexual behaviors.  

Video Training Series:

2-hour, four part video training series to provide clarity, collaborative community response to effective treatment for youth with problematic sexual behaviors, designed to help you serve children and their families in a very real way.
