Understanding Children’s Sexual Behaviors Training
It can be difficult to decide when sexual behavior is normal and healthy and when it is a sign of some distress or disturbance. “Understanding Children’s Sexual Behavior” is a one hour training that introduces you to natural and healthy sexual behaviors that children under 12 may engage in. It also discusses characteristics of problematic sexual behaviors in young children.

Children’s treasure chest, a part of the Sanford Health Dakota Children’s Advocacy Center (DCAC), provides children and their families who have been traumatized small things that can help make a stressful situation easier for them. The shelves of the treasure chest hold a small bright spot and sense of caring in a situation that can be confusing and sometimes scary.
A child may find comfort in the warmth of a blanket or a hug from a soft, stuffed animal. Children can express their stories through art and written means. And for families that drive long distances to the DCAC and spend most of the day with us, meal gift cards and snacks are greatly appreciated.
