Suitable for:

The course is aimed at professionals undertaking or supporting direct interventions with young people who sexually harm including YOT workers, social workers, police officers, health professionals, residential social workers, education staff and others in the safeguarding children/public protection network.

Background:

Since 1988 G-map has provided specialist therapeutic work to children and young people who have demonstrated harmful sexual behaviour. We recognise the pivotal role carers and allied professionals have in the recovery and rehabilitation of children with complex needs and assisting them to engage with therapeutic work. Understanding the role of attachment and trauma is fundamental to understanding and working with the behaviours of children who have experienced neglect, abuse and disruption to their care. 

Developmental trauma is set of complex difficulties affecting a child’s sensory systems, attachment, capacity for regulation, identity and cognitive abilities. In order to promote attachment informed interventions, the training will cover attachment theory from both a behavioural and neurobiological perspective using a range of demonstrations, small group exercises, videos and short presentations.
