The CAC is pleased to present a day and a half workshop, facilitated by Kevin Creeden, M.A., LMHC, to Bristol County practitioners. The process of identifying and responding to problematic sexual behaviors among youth can be fragmented and inconsistent. This workshop will present an overview of the connection between early trauma experiences, attachment difficulties and disrupted neurological development in children. These development difficulties are too often unappreciated in the treatment of problematic or abusive sexual behavior. This workshop will provide a deeper exploration into the practical ways to treat sexual behavior problems, using a broader developmental perspective. What constitutes risk? How can we improve assessment protocols and enhance treatment planning. Strategies on effectively engaging families, in treatment, will be discussed. A half-day session will welcome a dialogue with our presenter on challenges encountered in practice and sharing of treatment successes.
