The aim of the WASAPP project is to synthesise current evidence and generate new evidence about secondary prevention of harmful sexual behaviour, and to apply that evidence to the co-design of a Stop it Now! service or online website response to young people worried about their sexual behaviours.
The research questions are:
- What is known about intervening early in harmful sexual behaviour for children and young people?
- What are the components of a service response for children and young people worried about their sexual thoughts and behaviours?
How could this intervention be incorporated into an Australian Stop It Now! service?
