  • Insists on physical contact with a child when the child resists the attention?
  • Anxious, depressed or seeming to need help?
  • Tells you they do not want to be alone with a child, or group of children, or becomes anxious about being with a particular young person?
  • Was physically, sexually or emotionally abused and has not been offered adequate resources and support for recovery?
  • Seems to be crying for help, i.e. behaves as if they want to be caught; leaves “clues” or acts in ways that seem likely to provoke a discussion about sexual issues?
  • Impulsively sexual or aggressive?
  • Links sexuality and aggression in language or behavior (e.g. makes sexual threats or insults)?
