About this event

Childhood sexual abuse is an issue that affects many of the individuals we meet clinically, yet many clinical psychologists feel anxious or under-skilled when approaching conversations about this topic. This all-day conference will explore different aspects of this complex issue, whilst centring the voices and perspectives of those with lived experience of abuse. The varied programme includes topics such as: the neurodevelopmental impact of childhood maltreatment; the perspectives of social care workers in managing new disclosures of abuse; working with sexual risk in children and adolescents; the role for creativity in therapy with survivors of abuse; developing a new service for survivors of institutionalised abuse; the rewards and challenges for therapists undertaking this work; and the role of the expert consultant.

We will have speakers from: The Lighthouse, the Adolescent At Risk Service, the Traumatic Stress Clinic, and the National Adoption and Fostering Clinic in South London.
