6. Managing harmful sexual behaviour

If harmful sexual behaviour is discovered at school, it is important to have routines on what the staff should do and who to contact.

It is necessary for both the school and cooperating agencies that every role is clearly defined. Close interagency cooperation between the school and relevant agencies are crucial to ensure pupils displaying harmful sexual behaviour receive the help they need.

In this chapter you will get insight into routines for interagency cooperation, and an audio-recorded reflection on the importance of Consultations by psychology specialist Helle Kleive. There are also video interviews with representatives from several agencies; Else Baardsgaard from the children and family services in Trondheim municipality, Øystein Wammer-Pettersen from Statens barnehus in Trondheim, Tina Sæther from BUP and Jonas Overgaard from Bufetat.
