Problematic behaviour

Examples of problematic sexual behaviour

  • Problematic or concerning behaviours
  • Developmentally unusual or socially unexpected
  • Consent unclear
  • Lacking reciprocity or equal power
  • May include compulsivity

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.
