Price:             £280 per delegate plus £65 for a copy of the AIM Technology-Assisted HSB Practice Guidance
Course Aim
This two-day course aims to develop practice confidence and competence in understanding how technology can facilitate harmful sexual behaviours. 
It is drawn from and complements the AIM & NSPCC Technology Assisted Harmful Sexual Behaviour (TA-HSB) guidance (Allotey & Swann 2019) and has been designed to help practitioners to formulate judgements about risk in the context of concerns arising from an adolescent’s technology-assisted harmful sexual behaviours (TA-HSB) and the development of safety plans.
This training provides the understanding from research and practice on these types of behaviours and gives guidance on how the model works. It highlights the nuances in practice that workers may face and helps to develop analytical skills in relation to TA-HSB.  
Learning Outcomes
By the end of the course participants will:
·      Have an understanding of current research findings regarding technology assisted sexual harm
·      Know how to collect and collate relevant information regarding TA-HSB
·      Learn how to develop a case formulation 
·      Be confident in establishing safety plans.
