Event description

Description

An ultimate taboo subject female perpetrators are often missed or their culpability minimised within UK Law. Talking HEADS facilitator Lisa Watkins explores the contemporary messages offered from research and practice about 'female sexual abuse of children'.

This course is suitable for individuals who work with children and families, social workers, care assessors, mental health practitioners, individuals with safeguarding responsibilities, counsellors and therapists, health visitors...

Learning Outcomes

  • Define what constitutes sexual abuse
  • Examine the law of sexual offences & paraphillic disorders
  • Differentiate between male and female sexual abuse
  • Describe the characteristics of female abusers
  • Discuss the common typologies of female abusers
  • Insight into how this type of abuse can effect children

The course content discusses sensitive topics. The very nature of sexual abuse can be a distressing fact and reality, however, the consideration that females, i.e. mothers, step mothers, sisters, aunties, female babysiters could be perpetrators of sexual abuse is a subject of hightened fragility and one that cannot be comprehened by others. It is with this sensitivity in mind, we attempt to explore the possibilities of what accepting this reality would mean to us individuals and as a society.

Due to the nature of the course, the facilitator will be available after the course for further conversation, if required.
