Leading Sexuality Education Groups with Sexually Abusive Youth: Streetwise to Sex-Wise, the NEW Third Edition

Presenter: Steven Brown, Psy.D.
Date: Tues. May 16, 2017
Time: 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM EST
Host: Craig Latham
Technical Advisor: Tim Griffith

Description:

Since the 1980s, many in the sex abuse field have raised concerns that sexually abusive youth often emerge from treatment programs with a sophisticated knowledge of what NOT to do with their sexual feelings, but little if any knowledge about healthy sexual expression. Many feel unprepared to enter the world of romantic and sexual relationships. Some come to equate any sexual expression with deviant sexual expression. Others vow to put their sexuality away altogether.

Now, there is general agreement that best practice involves helping youth learn about healthy sexuality, not only stopping abusive sexual behavior. It requires teaching about sexual behaviors youth can engage in as replacement behaviors for abusive sexuality.

For 25 years, Streetwise to Sex-wise: Sexuality Education for High-Risk Youth, now in its 3rd edition, has been a “go-to” curriculum for agencies across the globe serving youth with sexual behavior problems. This interactive workshop, by the author, will introduce participants to the third edition, discuss the methodology for teach sexuality education to high-risk youth, and introduce strategies used in sex ed groups for this population.

Presenter Bio:

Dr. Steven Brown is a clinical psychologist with 20 years experience working with teens, families, college students, and adults with a range of mental health concerns including anxiety, depression, identity issues, trauma, grief and loss, parenting, and relationship difficulties. I believe that growth and healing happens in a safe collaborative therapeutic relationship. Teens especially often need safe and healthy adults outside their family to help them navigate the challenging transition from adolescence to young adulthood. A therapist can serve that critical role. He is rooted in psychodynamic and family systems orientations, but uses a variety of practical techniques to help clients including mindfulness, Somatic Experiencing (SE), relaxation training, DBT, and parent training.
His specialties include: trauma, boys and men, adolescent sexuality, and problem sexual behavior in youth.
Outside private practice, he holds several positions: Director, Traumatic Stress Institute of Klingberg Family Centers (New Britain, CT); Coordinator, Risking Connection Training Program, an international trauma training program for public mental health workers; Adjunct Faculty,Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program, UMASS Amherst.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will Learn:

1. The rationale for teaching healthy sexuality groups to youth with sexual behavior problems.
2. A methodology for leading sexuality education groups.
3. Innovative strategies for teaching about healthy sexuality with youth with sexual behavior problems.

Presenter: Joann Schladale, MS, LMFT
Date: Tuesday, April 11, 2017
Time: 3:00-4:00 pm EDT

Title: Family Reunification after Child Sexual Abuse

Presenters: Joan Tabachnick, MBA and Peter Pollard. MPA

Date: Tuesday, March 15, 2016

Time:  3-4 p.m. EST

Description Few topics stir such intense emotional reactions as the prospect of reintegrating adults, adolescents, and children who have sexually abused back into their families and communities.  Yet, the complicated realities of criminal justice, family law, and family dynamics mean that advocates and service providers across disciplines are frequently called upon to help mediate that process with few guidelines. This interactive workshop will present participants with tools, strategies, and insights to help enhance safety, cooperation, and positive outcomes for all involved.

Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • Provide 2 examples of legal complications that tend to arise regarding sexual abuse of children
  • Describe 3 strategies for effective mediation in such legal proceedings
  • Describe an approach for clinical application of mediation approaches for adult clientele who were sexually abused as children

Presenter Bios:

He previously worked for 15 years as a state, child-protection social worker and was Public Education director at Stop It Now!. Since 2003, he’s been the Western Mass. coordinator for SNAP (the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests) and also works as a group facilitator for an Intimate Partner Violence Education Program.

Joan Tabachnick:  Over the past 25 years, Joan has developed educational materials and innovative programs for national, state and local organizations.  Her work includes a National Sexual Violence Resource publication, blog, and online course, “Engaging Bystanders in Sexual Violence Prevention,” a book through the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers called “A Reasoned Approach:  The Reshaping of Sex Offender Policy to Prevent Child Sexual Abuse,” and program materials for the Enough Abuse Campaign, “Gate Keepers for Kids” providing simple prevention guidelines for all youth serving organizations.  Joan is currently on a fellowship focusing on sexual violence prevention with the Department of Justice SMART Office.

Supporting Families of Children and Adolescents with Problematic Sexual Behavior


Presenter Bios:

Jane F. Silovsky, PhD, is a professor and clinical child psychologist and the Associate Director of the Center on Child Abuse and Neglect.  Currently, she is a Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.  Dr. Silovsky is the Director of the Treatment Program for Children with Problematic Sexual Behavior, which is an assessment, treatment, and research program for children ages 3-12 with problematic sexual behaviors. 

 Jimmy Widdifield, Jr., M.A., is a Licensed Professional Counselor at the University of Oklahoma Health   Sciences Center, Center on Child Abuse and Neglect, in Oklahoma City, OK.  He is the Co-Director of the Treatment Program for Children with Problematic Sexual Behavior Program for School-Age Children. Mr. Widdifield’s clinical interests include youth ages 3-18 with problematic or illegal sexual behavior, victims, and their families.

More than one-third of sexual offenses against children are committed by other youth.  When youth engage in problematic sexual behaviors (PSB), they typically do so with other children in their family or extended social networks.  Families are often bereft of what to do when PSB occur within the family and how to address safety and the treatment needs of all the children, as are professionals across systems who may be mired in misconceptions. This webinar will provide professionals working with youth with PSB research-based background information on this population and strategies to promote provision of comprehensive services to these youth, child victims, and their families in a way that preserves the family and promotes effective healing.  
Date:  Tuesday November 17, 2015
Time:  3-4 P.m. Eastern Time
Learning Objectives:
1)      Participants will learn to describe research-based knowledge on problematic sexual behavior in children and illegal sexual behavior in adolescents.
2)      Participants will learn to explain evidence that counter common misconceptions about children with problematic sexual behavior and adolescent with illegal sexual behavior.
3)      Participants will learn to identify research supported components of treatment for youth with sexual behavior problems.
