Boundary Invasions and Sexual Grooming (Webinar)
Mar 24 @ 7:00 am – 11:00 pm

The NCSBA registration is temporarily down as we transition to a new system. Service is expected to resume on March 3.

Most cases of sexual abuse of students by school employees are preceded by a form of “sexual grooming.” Sexual grooming often is only evident after the fact and can be quite subtle and similar to innocent behavior, which can make it difficult for school administrators to identify. On the other hand, no school employee wants his or her innocent attempts at establishing a sound and trusting relationship with students to be viewed as grooming for sexual misconduct. This webinar will discuss how to resolve this dilemma by ensuring employees and administrators understand the difference between appropriate and inappropriate boundary invasions and the importance of observing and enforcing professional boundaries.
