Description of intervention
Changing Futures aims to provide educators and frontline staff with the tools they need to identify and respond to harmful sexual behaviours in pre-teens. This program acts in response to research indicating 90% of Australian educators believe existing mandatory reporting training does not equip them with adequate skills in this area. Through national webinars, state and territory specific workshops, and practical resources, Changing Futures will build competence and confidence in the prevention, identification, and early intervention of these behaviours.
Delivered by leading academic and therapeutic specialists, these educational sessions will cover a range of critical topics surrounding children’s sexual behaviour.
