Where there are concerns about problematic sexual behaviour, child sexual abuse or professional sexual misconduct it is essential that the right steps are taken to ensure that safeguarding is prioritised and risk is assessed. Mentor Forensic Services work with both adults and young people and regularly assist Children’s Services and organisations in such instances.

Children & Young People

Mentor works with children and young people who display reactive and Problematic Sexual Behaviour (PSB). We do this through the New Ways programme, which provides assessment and intervention both in the community and in residential children’s homes.

There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to dealing with confirmed or suspected PSB: every instance brings unique challenges and needs an experienced and individualised response.

Our clinical services include:

  • Assessments which seek to better understand the motivations and risk factors and provide recommendations as to how best to move forward.
  • Intervention programmes help the young person and their family/carers to learn ‘New Ways’, reduce risk improve safeguarding for all
  • Assessment of parents’/cares ability to protect
  • Case consultancy

Where an allegation or suspicion of child sexual abuse has been levelled against an individual it is essential that the right steps are taken to ensure that defensible decisions are made, that any determined risk is reduced and that safeguarding is prioritised.

In addition, we provide safeguarding assessments, where it may be considered important to determine a mother’s/other carers’ understanding of the issues and their ability to protect children.

Our clinical services include:

  • Specialist Risk Assessments
  • Safeguarding Assessments of Mothers’ ability to protect

  • Case Consultancy
