Harmful Sexual Behaviour

What is harmful sexual behaviour?

 

Harmful sexual behaviour (HSB) is developmentally inappropriate sexual behaviour displayed by children and young people which is harmful or abusive1.

 

Peer-on-peer abuse is a form of HSB where sexual abuse takes place between children of a similar age or stage of development.

 

Problematic sexual behaviour (PSB) is developmentally inappropriate or socially unexpected sexualised behaviour which doesn’t have an overt element of victimisation or abuse.
