Conference Report

02/11/13

We were very pleased to have sponsored the latest Community Care SHB Conference which discussed ways to overcome the challenges in supporting children and young people who display sexually harmful behaviour.

 Gill Holiday and Debbie Royce talked about how SWAAY has used the latest knowledge on the neurological effects of trauma to develop practical tools to effectively treat the ‘whole child' when working with those affected by SHB.

 The urgent need for early interventions using this type of work was highlighted in the Criminal Justice Joint Inspectorate's report, 'Examining Multi-Agency Responses to children and Young People who sexually offend,' the publication of which coincided with the Conference.

 These papers can be downloaded from the 'Useful Links' section of our News page.
