April 2023Vol. 24, No. 3Problematic Sexual Behavior of Children and Youth: Clinical Assessment and Treatment Overview Courses

OneOp, a professional development platform for providers who serve military families, has a series of courses for clinically assessing, responding to, and treating problematic sexual behavior of children and youth (PSB-CY). The free training series, which is grounded in evidence-based practices, is self-paced and includes information, activities, and resources for providers. The material focuses on children and youth between the ages of 9 and 14.

There are four courses, each of which takes about 90 minutes to complete:

  • "Clinical Assessment of Children and Youth With Problematic Sexual Behavior"
  • "Caregiver Engagement in Assessment and Treatment"
  • "Clinical Decision-Making and Treatment Planning"
  • "Monitoring Safety Planning, Supervision, and Treatment Progress"  

While OneOp is primarily for miliary families and those who work with them, the information in the PSB-CY courses may also be useful for nonmilitary families.

For more information and to enroll in the free training, visit the OneOp website. Course completion may count for credit toward certain credentialing agencies, including the Commission for Case Manager Certification and the National Council on Family Relations.
