Working with Sexualised Behaviour Training Course (Level 3)

Course Overview

Sexualised behaviour and experiences are part of the natural learning process of children and young people and express how people are beginning to identify with themselves, their own sexuality and the influences around them.

However, this behaviour can become problematic when further issues can cause children and young people to attempt to engage other children or adults in sexual behaviours which would not be considered usual or expected at their current age.

This training course provides learners with knowledge of the meaning of sexualised behaviours and the difference between healthy, problematic and harmful behaviours, discusses the possible influences which may have caused these behaviours to be displayed and provides ideas for supporting and signposting children and young people who present sexualised behaviours and their family and support teams. This is a Level 3 accredited course.
