Course Overview:

Join us for a full day of training and discussion about the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC).  As professionals develop strategies that help both identify and support victims, this statewide event will share current trends and innovative approaches to working with CSEC youth and allow for networking with others in the field doing the work.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify pathways to entry, risk factors and warning signs related to CSEC and how these manifest in youth
  • Analyze how human trafficking fits into the larger fight for social justice and equity
  • Assess the systemic inequities that create vulnerabilities
  • Identify various engagement strategies, interventions, and service needs of victims
