This webinar is intended for all members of faith communities who care for or work with pre-pubescent children and their families.

Those who are intending to join parts two and three of this webinar series are highly recommended to join part one, but this is not a requirement.

What you will learn in this webinar:

This first webinar on Sexual Behaviour in Pre-Pubescent Children will help participants consider and identify the difference between age-expected and problematic sexual behaviour, explore the possible causes of problematic sexual behaviours in children of this age group, identify initial responses to such behaviours and provide guidance on when to seek further advice, assessment or intervention.

N.B. This course does not relate to adolescent children.

Learning objectives:

  • To help participants consider and identify the differences between healthy, age-expected and problematic sexual behaviour in pre-pubescent children.
  • To identify how to respond to sexual behaviour in a supportive and positive way.
  • To help participants identify when there is a need to consult with or refer to specialist agencies for further advice or intervention.
  • To identify some helpful resources.
  • To highlight some of the common facts and myths in this area.
  • To provide participants with an opportunity to discuss and share their questions, fears and worries and to consider their future needs.


The webinar will be hosted by Daniele Donnini (CPSL Director of Safeguarding).

The presentation will be delivered with participation from Robert Tucker. Robert Tucker is an Independent Social Work Consultant and is the Director of RGT Training and Consultancy, an independent agency in the United Kingdom specialising in sexual abuse, sexual behaviour problems and child trauma. Robert specialises in working with children, young people and their caregivers where there are concerns about sexual abuse and children’s sexual behaviour, providing assessments and intervention to children and adolescents who are victims / suspected victims of abuse and to those who display sexually inappropriate or sexually harmful behaviours.
