Based on current evidence based techniques, interventions target two primary strategies:
- Treatment, education, and supervision of problem sexual behavior in children, and
- Active participation of parents and caretakers. Problem behaviors are identified and addressed in individual, group, and family therapy.
Specifically, after intakes with parents and/or caretakers, and a review of referring information, children and their parents will participate in a minimum of a 12-week therapy process. Clinicians providing therapy are trained in multicultural issues and will be utilizing an integrated approach which targets problem behaviors (such as: impulsivity, lack of boundaries, aggression, etc.) utilizing Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy strategies. To ensure the child’s engagement in the treatment process, several child-friendly, expressive therapy strategies will be used.
