003: Sexually Maladaptive Children [with guest Romunda Valentine, MSW, LCSW, CSAYC]
During this episode, we discuss children who have been diagnosed as being sexually maladaptive. We'll talk about signs to look for and methods for treatment. And practical things you can do, if you're raising or working with a sexually maladaptive child.
Joining in on this conversation is our guest, Romunda Valentine:
Romunda started working in a residential treatment facility shortly after she graduated with her BS in Psychology and a minor in Child Development in 1995. She stayed in residential for many years, doing individual and behavioral management. Later, Romunda left residential to work in various other settings (school based, community services, foster care/adoption, contractual work, etc.). In between jobs, Romunda went back to school and obtained her MSW in 2002, while later receiving her LCSW. Romunda obtained certifications to work with sexually abusive youth in 2007 (CSAYC) and later youth who have experienced trauma (TF-CBT). Currently, Romunda manages an agency, Family and Community Partners LLC, that she founded in April of 2014.
