Clinicians at the Center for Child and Family Traumatic Stress developed the SMART treatment model to addresses the mental health needs of sexually abused children exhibiting problematic sexual behaviors. The model is abuse-specific and is directed at the resolution of the trauma of child sexual abuse through a reparative process. This two-day training session provides an overview of the typology of sexually aggressive children, the impact of sexual abuse on the continuum of sexual development, and clinical strategies and interventions specifically designed to decrease problematic sexual behavior. It also addresses the trauma of child sexual abuse and the role of community networking required to best serve these children. Each participant will receive a comprehensive, highly flexible yet structured treatment manual and workbook that detail the core components and strategies needed to successfully implement the model. Consultation phone calls to support the implementation of the model following training are required.
