Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children LIVE- ACT 48
This course was designed to describe the current problem of sexual exploitation of children. The Dept. of Justice funded a study on youth involvement in the sex trade in 2016 and found that the number of youth in the sex trade is likely close to 10,000 in the US. However, the study provides a large population estimate range, and recognizes the limitations of determining a hard number. The study states that by its estimates the number could be as low as 4000 youth or as high as 21000 youth, nowhere near the early mistaken estimates that continue to be shared. We have and will continue to interact with human trafficking victims in our workplaces. It is easier to deny the existence of trafficking in our community than to face the missed opportunities that have occurred on your watch.
After completing this activity, the learner will be able to:
- Define Human Trafficking and Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC)
- Identify appropriate ways to respond to potential CSEC victims
- Summarize immediate steps for potential CSEC victims
- Describe resources available in our community to prevent CSEC
