Can We Teach These Kids to Dance?

A developmental treatment approach for addressing sexual behavior problems in youth?

The CAC is pleased to present a day and a half workshop, facilitated by Kevin Creeden, M.A., LMHC, to Bristol County practitioners. The process of identifying and responding to problematic sexual behaviors among youth can be fragmented and inconsistent. This workshop will present an overview of the connection between early trauma experiences, attachment difficulties and disrupted neurological development in children. These development difficulties are too often unappreciated in the treatment of problematic or abusive sexual behavior. This workshop will provide a deeper exploration into the practical ways to treat sexual behavior problems, using a broader developmental perspective. What constitutes risk? How can we improve assessment protocols and enhance treatment planning. Strategies on effectively engaging families, in treatment, will be discussed. A half-day session will welcome a dialogue with our presenter on challenges encountered in practice and sharing of treatment successes.

Presenter:

Kevin Creeden, M.A., LMHC is the Director of Assessment and Research at the Whitney Academy in East Freetown, MA. He has over 30 years of clinical experience treating children, adolescents, and their families working extensively with sexually and physically aggressive youth. Over the past 15 years, his primary focus has been on issues of trauma and attachment difficulties, especially with regard to the neurological impact of trauma on behavior and he has authored articles and book chapters on the developmental impact of trauma and attachment difficulties on sexual behavior problems. Mr. Creeden trains and consults both nationally and internationally to youth services, community, and mental health service agencies.
