Child Sexual Abuse - A Case Study on Trauma Focused Screening and Intervention
Focus of this Training:
This webinar will focus on screening, initial response and trauma-focused interventions for childhood sexual abuse. The webinar will use an interactive, problem-based learning format, in which a clinical vignette of a 16-year-old female victim of sexual abuse will be presented and discussed. The first part of the webinar will address the mental health issues that we typically see in cases of childhood sexual abuse, with a specific emphasis on sleep problems. The presenters will discuss challenges in mental health screening in pediatric settings and how to identify traumatic stress symptoms related to remote trauma. The second half of the presentation will focus on how to use trauma-focused interventions to address some common symptoms of sexual trauma, incorporating skills from Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The presentation will provide space for interactive discussions with participants.
