This webinar will offer a presentation on human sexuality and psychosexual development, and explore how professionals can integrate this material into efforts with families and communities to promote sexual health and safety and prevent child sexual abuse.  Built around two foundational beliefs that 1)   human sexuality components are woefully lacking in many child sexual abuse prevention initiatives, and 2) parents play a critical role in promoting the sexual health and safety of their children, in their home and in the community. This webinar will provide information and resources for professionals to apply to their work.

Continuing Education Credits

E-mail Print

Continuing Education Credits are available for many of these webinarsClick here to scroll through the various webinar options. To receive your CEs follow the instructions provided for the specific webinar.

Due to a recent change in regulations in the state of NY, Orlando Behavior Health Services is currently in the process of applying to the State of NY Social Work Board to provide Social Work CEs to NY licensed Social Workers. Until that time they are not able to guarantee that the NY Social Work Board will accept its CEs as they are approved by another state. Once its approval is received NEARI Press will post an announcement regarding NY Social Work CE offerings. If you have any questions please contact OBHS at 860-315-0565.
