Advanced Consultation on Sexual Behavior Problems with Children and their Families

Eliana Gil, Ph.D., RPT-S

Program Goals

This training will allow participants to consult on issues that emerged while they practiced using either the assessment or treatment model of Boundary Project.  Participants report back through pre-selected presentations, how their work has gone so far. During this workshop, participants who have attended the introductory course on sexual behavior problems,  can make presentations using pictures of art work, or other creative activities, and can consult on a number of different issues including:  Review of art or other creative activities; summarizing or writing a report; obstacles and challenges encountered; or ways in which the assessment and treatment approaches were successful. This day-long consultation format will allow us to deepen our understanding of assessment and treatment issues with sexual behavior problems.  Participant commitment in using the approach is highly encouraged.
