Child sexual abuse is a difficult topic. If you find yourself triggered by any of the website’s content, please stop and take the time you need to talk with someone to get support. If you need help now, please contact one of these resources today.

This short survey created by the Working Group on Problematic Sexual Behaviors (PSB), which a subcommittee of the Legislative Task Force on the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse, is designed to explore how professionals in Massachusetts recognize and respond to children and adolescents who display some form of problematic sexual behaviors (PSB).  We believe that these survey results will provide insight into how these children and youth and their families are able to get the help they need and for older kids, have some form of accountability and intervention for their behaviors.  The results of the survey will be made available to anyone who participates.  We know this will ultimately be helpful to our continued commitment to protecting our children and teens. 

If you have any questions about the survey, please feel free to Joan Tabachnick at or Tammy Bernardi at  Thank you for taking the time!
