Cases of children ages 12 and younger with problematic sexual behavior (PSB) can present a myriad of challenges for multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) and children’s advocacy centers (CACs). Fortunately, the MDT approach and the CAC model are ideal vehicles for development and implementation of an integrated and comprehensive systems approach to cases of children with PSB, recipient children, and their families. This presentation will review recommendations designed to guide and support MDTs and CACs to enhance current practices, improve professional response, and promote positive outcomes for children with PSB, children impacted by the PSB, and their families.
Identify four areas in which MDTs and CACs can enhance professional response to children with PSB and their families.
Explore myths and misconceptions about the dynamics of cases involving children with PSB.
Learn available resources that support MDTs and CACs to provide a comprehensive response to children with PSB, recipient children, and their families.
