- Recommendation ID
Early interventions to prevent problems escalating:- What interventions are effective in diverting children and young people away from further harmful sexual behaviour before a legal response is needed?
- Any explanatory notes
Why this is important:- There is a need for more evidence on what is effective in diverting children and young people away from further harmful sexual behaviour at the earliest stages of its development. Research is needed on missed opportunities to intervene and what the trajectory has been for those children and young people who were missed. Such evidence could help ensure children and young people receive timely support to prevent an escalation of the behaviour.
