There’s More To Me Than What You See: Providing Effective Services to Sexually Exploited Children and Youth Victimized By Human Trafficking
Registration: 8:30 a.m.
DESCRIPTION : The most common form of sex trafficking of minors in the United States is among runaways. Without appropriate screening and services these victims may never enter or disappear from mainstream services and become vulnerable to some of the most sadistic and brutal violence in our society. When they surface, they may be too close to aging out of the child protection services system and too young and inappropriate for adult services. Failure to identify these victims puts them at risk of being miss-labeled as juvenile delinquents and criminals. A specialized intervention model is required to ensure comprehensive care for each victim. This training provides information about the dynamics of child sex trafficking and its aftereffects on victims that CPS and juvenile justice workers can use to facilitate collaborative case planning and to assist with developing skills to work effectively with these victims.
