In this workshop, participants will learn about normative sexual behaviour using a developmental perspective in order to increase their understanding and awareness of inappropriate sexual behaviour presentations. Most often parents, teachers and healthcare professionals are the ones who identify sexualized behaviour by the pre-school and school aged child. They may struggle due to lack of understanding of normative sexual development and further confounded by issues surrounding these behaviours including the influence of culture and media on “acceptable” behaviour. Making a determination as to the necessity of clinical intervention requires understanding of a number of criteria.

Outcomes/Objectifs d'apprentissage

• Understand normative sexual development in preschool and school-aged children.
• Recognize inappropriate sexualized behaviour presentations in young children.
• Determine when to refer children with sexualized behaviour for further assessment and clinical intervention.
