Aim

The Traffic Lights® framework (TLF) is an innovative course that facilitates the appropriate identification and response to a broad range of sexual behaviours in children and young people, ranging from behaviours that are normal and age appropriate, to those that are problematic and signal the need for follow up and support. At its core, is the traffic lights symbol - Green, Orange and Red. Through the various modules, students learn to apply this representation to the sexual behaviours of children and young people, to enable identification of whether a behaviour is of concern, to understand what the behaviour is communicating, and to respond appropriately to the behaviour, ensuring the safety of the child. The course focuses on issues related to sexuality in childhood from interdisciplinary perspectives (for example, sociology, psychology, public health, paediatrics and childhood studies), with an emphasis on understanding the ways in which social and cultural systems shape understandings of childhood sexuality and sexuality more generally.

Who is this for?

This course is aimed at those with a professional interest in children and young people, such as those in the fields of health, education and child protection.
