Consultation

Listen to a read-aloud version of the text on this page

The Child Welfare Service is responsible for coordination in cases about harmful sexual behaviour, and will hold a Consultation. The Consultation is held shortly after the behaviour has occurred, so that all parties gain a common understanding of what is to happen next. Suitable agencies to include – excluding the school (contact teacher, guidance counsellor, principal) – are PPT, family protection services, BUP, the Police, Statens Barnehus, general psychologist, Bufetat. Guardians are allowed in during the last part of the meeting.

The purpose of this meeting is to create a plan for the immediate future with everyone involved.

The origin of the Consultation – a reflection

V27 is a clinical resource unit for the BUP units in Helse Vest. It is connected to BUP at Betanien hospital. The target group of V27 is children and adolescents who display problematic or harmful sexual behaviour toward other children. The unit also offers training and guidance to professionals, authorities and agencies.
