We offer these webinars as a free educational opportunity for our NEARI Press customers and those who care deeply about this work. However, we would not be able to do this important work without our sponsors and donors.


As a small non-profit organization, we rely on subscribers to help support our webinar work.  For those who can support us through a subscription, we will send you two of NEARI Press's popular titles:  Current Applications and Current Perspectives (other titles if you have subscribed last year!) with a value of $149 and we guarantee a seat at each event in our annual webinar series - Sponsorship is $98 for individuals and $250 for organizations.  Please contact Diane Langelier at 413.540.0712 x14 or at for more information or to sign up.  

We believe that given a chance to hear an author speak about his or her work through our webinars, you, the listener will have the chance to “preview the book” and have the opportunity to learn so much more by combining both online and offline learning.

Webinar Description:

Children and adolescents develop in dramatically different ways and a developmental context is essential to understanding problematic sexual behaviors among children and adolescents. The lenses of normative development and developmental psychopathology are essential to understanding the meaning and function of problematic or abusive sexual behavior. In turn, understanding the developmentally-informed functions and purposes of problematic sexual behaviors allows for individualized case formulation to guide further assessment, risk management, and establishing the foundations for building treatment relationships and implementing. A developmentally-informed case formulation can take into account that the same normative or problematic behaviors may have different meanings or functions among individuals, and that those meanings and functions may shift over time or context. Case illustrations include youth with Asperger’’s syndrome, intellectual disabilities, and psychiatric disabilities.

Too often the child and adolescent behaviors that we deal with daily -- inattentiveness, lack of understanding or refusal to participate -- are misunderstood as attitude or motivational problems when they stem from neurology instead. Therapists, counselors, teachers and direct care staff can both discover and mediate some of these problems. Come join us to learn best practices for brain-based strategies you can use.
