Youth with Problematic Sexual Behaviors Conference
Date: September 19-20, 2019
Presented by Benjamin A. Sigel, Ph.D (University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences) and Renee Roman, LMSW (START Children's Center Inc. in Troy, NY)
Over the course of two days, attendees will participate in informative presentations on topic areas surrounding problematic and illegal sexual behaviors in children and adolescents, including: background, characteristics, and impact; assessment and treatment; effective clinical practices; and MDT and community response. Scheduled breakout opportunities for teams throughout the conference will allow teams to plan and enhance their MDT response for YPSB cases.
Who should attend: Multidisciplinary teams of 5 people. As the Executive Director or MDT Coordinator, we ask you to attend the conference and coordinate 4 MDT members to attend with you. Please choose members that are committed to and actively support the CAC/MDT Model and who are interested in addressing the community's response to YPSB cases. It is required that you attend as the MDT Coordinator or Executive Director. The other 4 members can be from any discipline within the MDT, but should be individuals with supervisory or decision-making responsibility and represent a variety of disciplines. We realize that some MDT partners may have multiple roles, i.e. Law Enforcement that serve as Forensic Interviewers or a Program Coordinator that is also a Victim Advocate, so there is flexibility for your team to have multiple roles represented during the training.
