Young people who display technology-assisted harmful sexual behaviour

The NSPCC’s Impact and evidence series features a blog by the NSPCC’s Senior Evaluation Officer Vicki Hollis and Associate Head of Evaluation Emma Belton sharing findings from a literature review and research exploring the backgrounds and behaviours of young males who display harmful sexual behaviour (HSB) using the internet and digital technology, known as technology assisted HSB or TA-HSB. Describes how research findings were used to develop the TA-HSB practice guidance to help practitioners assess the risks arising from an adolescent’s technology assisted HSB.
