Inappropriate Behaviour

Examples of inappropriate sexual behaviour

  • Single instances of inappropriate behaviour
  • Socially acceptable within peer group
  • Context may be inappropriate
  • Generally consensual or reciprocal

If behaviours are identified as inappropriate, usually some education is all that is needed to ensure a child is aware of the concerns and what is expected of them instead. Click here for some useful resources.

However, if behaviour is identified as problematic, abusive or harmful a more specialist assessment will be needed to identify the correct support and intervention for everyone involved.
