Prevention Series: Working with Children and Youth who have Engaged in Sexually Abusive Behaviours – Online Series

The Radius Institute is committed to cost effective, quality training to professionals providing mental health services to children and youth. This Fall we will offer a series focused on working with children and youth who have engaged in concerning or sexually abusive sexual behaviours.  This training will provide you with foundational and comprehensive knowledge and skills to enhance your journey into this specialization.  This training is geared toward professionals who are able to practice the controlled act of psychotherapy.   There are 3 separate series offered, totalling 10 training days.  You are welcome to register for 1 – 3 series (i.e., totalling 4 – 10 training days) or just the introductory sessions (i.e., the first training day per series). Participants who desire more information about the topic areas but who are not in assessment or treatment role with this client population, have the option of attending the first training day of each series. Those who intend on engaging in assessment and treatment roles are encouraged to attend an entire series.

This live virtual training series includes 10 training days from October 2023 – December 2023.  All training days will use the Zoom platform and will run from 9:30am to 4:00pm EST (Toronto Time Zone) with many regulation breaks and involve multiple modes of teaching – lecture, videos, discussion groups, modeling, literature review, etc.  The intention is to provide a forum for small group discussions and opportunities to learn and share. As such, there is a limited number of spots available.  You will receive a certificate of completion and continuing education credits from the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association are available to those who complete a full series. All participants are invited to keep their cameras on. The Radius Institute Faculty is looking forward to meeting you.
