Course Breakdown:

Part 1: Identifying the differences between age-appropriate sexual curiosity and atypical sexual behaviour

Understanding the nature of sibling relationships and their impact on attachment is critical to examine the power dynamics between siblings and how these can be misused. By increasing awareness of the range of sibling and peer-on-peer sexual abuse, you’ll understand its nature and distinguish between typical and atypical, non-consensual sexual behaviour. Then you will acquire knowledge on the role of grooming and ‘normalisation’ of sexually harmful behaviour.

Next, raise your awareness of ‘dual status’ siblings who have been sexually abused and go on to engage in sexual harmful behaviour. Following this, you will learn to understand the barriers to disclosure and how to facilitate this. Finally, you will explore the risk factors in sibling sexual abuse such as individual factors, family factors and cultural factors.

Part 2: The impact of sibling sexual abuse, how to work with families and survivors, prevention and talking to young people about sex

You will examine the impact of sibling sexual abuse on the sibling being harmed, the sibling who is harming and the family. Then you will make the link between sibling sexual abuse and PTSD, C-PTSD, developmental trauma and delayed trauma, identifying the long-term effects.

The focus will then shift onto examining how to work with children and families in which sibling sexual abuse has occurred. You will gain understanding of how to work with adult survivors and how to legitimise the abuse to facilitate recovery and healing. Subsequently, awareness in two critical areas will be raised: firstly, of the difficulties faced by parents and primary caregivers when sibling abuse is disclosed; secondly how to talk to children about sex and sexuality to help protect them from sexually harmful behaviour. You will learn how to use the Power Threat Meaning Framework, Trauma Informed Practice and a Phased Oriented Approach.

Finally, you will explore a range of preventative measures to minimize the risk of sibling sexual abuse, with an emphasis on the need for practitioner self-care to reduce the risk of vicarious traumatisation.
