Commercially Sexually Exploited Children
Human trafficking is a horrible crime impacting young people in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. Many do not receive help because they are misidentified or not recognized at all. This course will equip participants with an understanding of the psychological and social dynamics, life events, and contributing factors that can lead to the sexual exploitation of a child. Participants will learn how to recognize risks and warning signs associated with young people in out-of-home care and how to implement the critical first steps in reducing their vulnerability. Additionally, this course will offer practical and useful strategies to support the prevention of youth exploitation and to participate in effective response to youth who have been victimized.
