Stopping the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children in the United States: Education to Action (Workshop 125)
The commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) is comprised of sexual abuse and remuneration in cash or kind to the child or a third person or persons. CSEC is expressed through multiple forms of prostitution and pornography as well as the sale and trafficking of children for sexual purposes. The University of Pennsylvania's School of Social Work estimates that 200,000 to 300,000 children in the United States are at high risk of involvement in CSEC each year. This workshop will 1) introduce child- and youth-serving professionals to the issue of CSEC; 2) provide an overview of national and local responses to the CSEC problem; and 3) introduce participants to methods for working in multidisciplinary teams at the local and State levels to better protect children.
