Concerning sexual behavior in children can be challenging to understand, difficult to talk about, and hard to manage in school and community settings. Without a systematic best-practice approach for addressing these behaviors, communities run the risk of exposing their children to harm and their organizations to liability. In this book, Dr. Wilson Kenney, a clinical psychologist with over 15 years experience treating and assessing kids with concerning sexual behavior, lays out a comprehensive school/community based model for identifying and addressing concerning sexual behavior in children that is based upon best-practice models for threat assessment. The reader will find practical and economically sensitive recommendations regarding school and community supervision, ideas for accessing consultation, and advice regarding how best to approach these topics with families. Further, this book contains all the necessary paperwork and guidance needed to establish a formal school-based process for addressing concerning sexual behavior in children, regardless of the size of your community. It is a comprehensive how-to guidebook for keeping your school and community safe.
