Event evaluation report and presentations from ‘Prevention, Intervention & Inclusion: Harmful Sexual Behaviour And Young People With ASN’

Prevention, Intervention & Inclusion: Harmful Sexual Behaviour And Young People With Additional Support Needs

This event was organised in partnership with CYCJ, SOLD Network and STF, and was held on Wednesday 3rd April 2019 at the Insight Institute, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.

The event considered how preventative approaches and early intervention can support young people with additional support needs who present with Harmful Sexual Behaviour (HSB). It built on the feedback from participants at the ‘Staying Safe’ consultation event, held in February 2019, about the lived experiences and needs of young people with additional support needs who present with HSB and their families.
