Safe Church Program

Responding to Problematic Sexual Behaviours in Children 

In August and September CPSL will present a new webinar series. This series is designed to help members of faith communities gain awareness of and understand and manage problematic sexual behaviours in children.

While each of the three webinars has a slightly different focus and will benefit particular groups more than others, those who are interested in gaining a general awareness and understanding of the topic are encouraged to attend all three sessions.  

These webinars will feature Robert Tucker. Robert is an Independent Social Work Consultant and is the Director of RGT Training and Consultancy, an independent agency in the United Kingdom specialising in sexual abuse, sexual behaviour problems and child trauma. Robert specialises in working with children, young people and their caregivers where there are concerns about sexual abuse and children’s sexual behaviour, providing assessments and intervention to children and adolescents who are victims/suspected victims of abuse along with children who display sexually inappropriate or sexually harmful behaviours.  

Robert will be joining these webinars live from the UK - to facilitate Robert's participation, all sessions will commence at 8.00am AEST.
