About This Webinar:

Child sexual abuse can be a very tough topic to discuss. However, it is very important when preparing families and professionals with strategies to keep kids safe and thriving during childhood and youth. In this webinar Dr. Shelly Martin, a child abuse pediatrician and US Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, will review and explore normal, concerning and problematic sexualized behaviors that children may display. Additionally, various factors associated with children’s sexualized behaviors will be identified to assist clinicians in understanding appropriate assessment and disclosure processes involved when problematic symptoms are present.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize normal sexualized behavior in children & youth.
  • Highlight and recognize concerning and problematic sexualized behaviors that children and youth may display.
  • Understand appropriate assessment and disclosure processes when working with children and families on the topic of problematic sexualized behavior.

The webinar is part of the Sexualized Behavior in Children & Youth Series hosted by MFLN Family Development. For more information on other trainings on this topic, visit the series homepage!

  1. I am having difficulty finding free social work webinars (and other media) productions on your website. The only problem is it is impossible to tell if the CEUs are accepted by individual states and/Or NASW. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    1. Hi Diane, Social Work CEUs are available through the UT Austin Steve Hicks School of Social Work. These educational hours may be submitted by professionals to meet continuing education requirements for renewal of Social Work, Professional Counselor, and Marriage and Family Therapist licenses. The UT Austin Steve Hicks School of Social Work is an approved CE provider in all but the following 11 states: Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, and Oklahoma.
      However, participants are encouraged to check with their states’ latest licensing rules to confirm reciprocity and CEU rules. Also, all of our programming (webinars, podcasts, virtual conferences) provide a certain number of Free CEUs. Please let us know if you have any more issues. Thanks!

  2. I am unable to join the webinar on May 22, 2019, due to a schedule change at work. Will there be another opportunity?
