Sexual Abuse Dynamic and Intervention Training, in partnership with Fordham University Children FIRST http://www.fordham.edu/childrenfirst
This 3-day course is intended to build skills and abilities of caseworkers who may encounter various components of sexual abuse in their ongoing work with families. It integrates the assessment of safety, risk and family functioning in the context of sexual abuse.
