This presentation focuses on the sexual development of children and adolescents and seeks to educate participants on healthy versus unhealthy sexual expression within childhood and adolescence. As mental health providers who work with children and adolescents it is imperative that we understand the nuanced development of sexual behaviors from birth to adulthood. Participants will discuss appropriate ways to address these concerns as well as how to empower the families they serve.

Multicultural and historical considerations will also be presented with an emphasis on how clinicians can support their clients of color. Participants will delve into the history of White Supremacy, Religion,  the creation of the concept of “childhood innocence” as well as ways in which Capitalism commodifies and exploits childhood sexuality, 

Participants will be able to:

  • Summarize the history and development of the construct of childhood innocence through the sociological lens of examining tenets of white supremacy, religion and capitalism 
  • Compare healthy versus unhealthy sexual behaviors among children & adolescents.

  • Articulate the significance of ‘family sexuality’ as it relates to childhood sexual behaviors 

  • Apply multicultural considerations to sexual behaviors in children of color with an emphasis on how to support Black families

  • Implement appropriate and therapeutically sound interventions to address both healthy and unhealthy sexual behaviors.

"This was honestly one of my favorite CEUs I've attended lately. The content was relevant to the modern days issues present in parenting and working with children. Monet did a great job of objectifying it into a more clinical approach which will give us added professionalism and confidence in working with families in these situations."

“Monet was a clear, concise, well-researched presenter who exhibited both a deep understanding and passion for the work she was presenting. This was easily one of the best seminars I've had the privilege of attending. The material presented was well-organized and walked through foundational knowledge, as well as the practical, and sometimes difficult, application within a realistic framework.”
