Aims and Objectives

Aim

Understanding how technology may facilitate sexual offending among adolescents poses practitioners with many unique challenges.  The Technology-Assisted Harmful Sexual Behaviour practice guidance*, which accompanies this training is intended to help practitioners better formulate judgments about risks in the context of concerns arising from an adolescent’s technology-assisted harmful sexual behaviours.

The practice guidance is drawn from research findings and current practice knowledge.  Importantly, it will provide practitioners with knowledge of the impact this form of child sexual abuse has on victims.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course participants will:

  • Have an understanding of current research findings regarding technology assisted child sexual abuse
  • Know how to collect and collate relevant information regarding TA-HSB
  • Learn how to develop a case formulation
