    When a child or adolescent sexually acts out it can be a scary experience for not just a parent, but also for the provider working with the family.  This talk will first correct common myths and misconceptions of children who sexually act out (e.g., the supermajority of these children are highly responsive to treatment and are NOT pedophiles).  The second aspect of this talk will be a walk through the evidence for how to treat these children and the likelihood of success (e.g., with appropriate, evidence-based practices children 3 to 18 who engage in these behaviors are up to 95% successful in treatment and do not sexually re-offend again).  Evidence for effective approaches and concrete examples and tips for working with these children and their families will be the main focus of this talk.

    At the end of this presentation the learner should be able to:

    • Basic information on how child/adolescent PSB’s are qualitatively different than pedophilia.
    • A conceptual understanding of how to help these children and adolescents.
    • Application of specific techniques to address PSB’s in children and adolescents.
