Sexual harm by youth can trigger confusion, anger,
and fear. APSHY's goal is to provide resources, information,
and guidance to anyone impacted by these issues.
It's helpful to understand that established, evidence-based research suggests that safety can be maintained, relationships restored and successful outcomes achieved.


APSHY is a multi-disciplinary group of professionals aligned to prevent sexual harm by youth. We provide educational resources, guidance for statewide collaboration, and the promotion of best practices for the treatment and prevention of youth with problem sexual behaviors.

We promote an intelligent, compassionate and data-informed response
to what is often perceived as an alarming and culturally sensitive issue.
