Understanding and responding to harmful sexual behaviour (HSB)

Understanding and responding to harmful sexual behaviour (HSB)

presented by the Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice


Sexual behaviour is a normal part of growing up and developing. However, there are some situations where behaviour may become concerning and/or harmful to both the child carrying out these behaviours and others who may be harmed.


It is important that responses are appropriate and proportionate and delivered in a child-centred, and informed manner, in line with GIRFEC.


This roadshow will use current research and evidence to provide an overview of both offline and online harmful sexual behaviours and consider what is supportive and effective in terms of assessment and intervention.


This training is suitable for teachers and other professionals supporting young people of all ages and abilities around issues of sexualised behaviour. It links directly to the Managing Sexualised Behaviour Guidelines for Schools and the introduction of the Good Lives Model.



Tuesday 10th September . 10am- 1pm. Lecture Theatre, Education & Conference Centre, Stirling Community Hospital.
