Continuum of Sexualized Behaviors in Children 

with Dr. Gizane Indart 

This course will address the complexities and challenges that professionals face when attempting to understand and address many of the sexualized behaviors traumatized children may display. We will begin with a quick overview of what constitutes healthy and expectable sexual behaviors. This course is designed to be highly interactive with opportunities to discuss cases you have seen in the workplace, so come with questions!

The primary focus of the training is on children who have experienced disruptions in healthy sexual development and  therefore manifest a wide range of sexualized behaviors, from reactive to problematic and abusive. 

Dr. Gizane Indart is a bilingual and bicultural professional who has worked with traumatized children and their families since the early 1990s. Gizane is a ChildTrauma fellow at the ChildTrauma Academy under the direction of Dr. Bruce Perry. She speaks locally, nationally and internationally on the impact of abuse and neglect in early development, attachment difficulties in children exposed to maltreatment, and sexualized behaviors in children. Gizane is a member of the International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect, the Children’s Cabinet Subcommittee, and the Early Childhood Mental Health Colorado Infrastructure.  Additionally, Gizane serves as a consultant for the Child Abuse and Neglect Unit at the Children’s Hospital in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In 2017, she completed a two year training on Problematic Sexual Behaviors through the University of Oklahoma.
