Identifying and Supporting Commercially Sexually Exploited Children for DCYF
Commercial sexual exploitation impacts many children and families the child welfare system is meant to support. In this course, you will learn more about the dynamics of commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC), risk factors and warning signs, and impacts of this experience on survivors. You will learn policy requirements to identify, document, and offer services to these young people, as well as the best practices to engage and support them. The importance of trauma based and culturally relevant work with this population is a theme throughout the course. While the focus is on children and young people, you will likely gain a better understanding of parents you work with who may also have experienced commercial sexual exploitation.
