Prevention, Intervention & Inclusion: Harmful Sexual Behaviour and young people with additional support needs

In partnership between Supporting Offenders with Learning Disabilities (SOLD), the Centre for Youth & Criminal Justice (CYCJ), and the Scottish Transitions Forum, this free one day conference will look at how preventative and early intervention can support young people with additional support needs who present with Harmful Sexual Behaviour (HSB).

This event will aim to develop a better understanding of HSB in this context and explore the ways in which preventative and early intervention approaches should be adapted to meet the needs of young people with additional support needs. It will also build on the insights gained from a consultation event, to be held on February 4, 2019, into the experiences and needs of young people with additional support needs who present with HSB and their families.

Speakers at the event will include Stuart Allardyce (Stop It Now! Scotland), Clare Allely (University of Salford) and Jana de Villiers (NHS Scotland). Workshops will explore issues, and there will be opportunity for further debate and discussion during a Q&A session.
