Recent  national guidance has drawn attention to the needs of children and young people with learning disabilities who display harmful sexual behaviour(s) and for appropriate interventions for them (NICE guideline, NG55 “Harmful sexual behaviour among children and young people”,  https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/ng55 , NSPCC “An evidence-informed framework for children and young people displaying harmful sexual behaviours”, https://www.nspcc.org.uk/services-and-resources/research-and-resources/2016/harmful-sexual-behaviour-framework/

The Keep Safe intervention for young people with learning disabilities who display harmful sexual behaviour(s)was developed and feasibility trialled by a national collaborative of practitioners and researchers hosted by the Tizard Centre, University of Kent-see https://www.kent.ac.uk/tizard/sotsec/ySOTSEC/ySOTSEC.html .

The Keep Safe training days will enable participants to:

  • understand the theory and evidence-informed practice underpinning the Keep Safe intervention for young people with learning disabilities who display harmful sexual behaviour(s)
  • experience some of how Keep Safe is delivered
  • develop the skills to deliver Keep Safe in both its original group-delivery format or as an individually-focused, family intervention.

There will be both “didactic” and interactive elements.  An electronic Keep Safe Manual with background, session plans and resources, and copies of the Keep Safe training power points will be given to participants.
