Training Description
This 1.5-hour training provides guidance to clinicians new to the process of working with children and adolescents with a history of sexual victimization. While there are ample trainings on the topic of child sexual abuse and sexual abuse treatment, few trainings address the needs of the treatment provider. As an adjunct professor for several universities and a clinical supervisor, Dr. Constance DelGiudice has witnessed firsthand the discomfort, hesitancy, and avoidance of most practitioners when it comes to approaching and treating sexual abuse. This presentation will expand upon the attributes that are integral and essential components in sexual abuse counseling. After understanding how to equip yourself as a therapist providing sexual abuse counseling, this presentation will then provide a step-by-step guided approach that walks the therapist through sexual abuse counseling— allowing for and promoting the inclusion of evidence-based treatments.
