Training Description

This 90-minute presentation offers innovative ideas for how DCF supervisors can help workers make evidence-based decisions in child sexual abuse cases. When sexual abuse is discovered, it creates crises and trauma for families. Victims, non-offending parents, and perpetrators all need different kinds of help to aid in healing and to create safety for children. This training addresses what child and teen victims need, complex family dynamics and non-offending parents, recognizing grooming, and considerations in referring for sex offender evaluation and treatment.
