SEBDA is committed to improving social inclusion and the capacity of mainstream schools to provide for children and young people. However we know from research and experience that for a small minority of pupils, social inclusion can be best pursued through education, support, care and therapy in specialist settings.
Mentor Forensic Services trains professionals who work with children or with perpetrators of child sexual abuse to use behavioural analysis techniques which improve their working practices and skills. Having delivered our well-established and highly acclaimed courses for the UK’s Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre for several years, Mentor is now running training across the UK, Ireland and America.
