Workforce Perspectives on Harmful Sexual Behaviour is a research report carried out by the National Children’s Bureau and Research in Practice with the Local Authorities Research Consortium(LARC).  The report shows the challenges that professionals face when responding to children who display Harmful Sexual Behaviour (HSB.) The research found:

  • Staff report that it is difficult to balance the rights and needs of a child displaying HSB, with the duty to protect other children.
  • High quality reflective supervision is key to practitioners’ ability to work safely, but access to this is patchy.
  • Professionals also identify support form peers as key to improving their confidence in working with children displaying HSB.
