Promoting Safety: Treatment of Sexualized Children (Skills Seminar M)
Promoting Safety: Treatment of Sexualized Children
(Skills Seminar M)
The Kennedy Krieger Family Center developed a specialized treatment program to address the mental health needs of sexually abused children with sexualized behavior, also know as the SMART (Safety Mentoring Advocacy Recovery Treatment) Clinic. It is the only program in the State of Maryland to focus on the specific issues of victimization and victimizing behavior for young and latency-aged children. Following an overview of pertinent theoretical perspectives, this skills seminar identifies the typology of sexually aggressive children and the impact of sexual abuse on the continuum of sexual development, the clinical strategies and interventions that are designed specifically to decrease problematic sexual behavior and address the trauma, the clinical considerations, and the role of community networking in serving these children.
