This course explores different models of working with children and young people at risk of or affected by sexual exploitation as well as the barriers to effective engagement and how to overcome them using practical tools and resources.
The course will also provide delegates with an understanding of trauma and how it can affect the behaviours of young people, as well as self-awareness of victim blaming in child sexual exploitation. The course will provide delegates with an understanding of the various ways child sexual exploitation can impact upon a young person.
Finally, this updated version of the course includes the honest voices of our own Young Person’s Participation Group, who spent time considering and advising what kind of support they want from professionals and how you can engage them.
