Training on understanding and preventing child sexual exploitation (level 2)

Thu September 7 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm


The Australian Health and Science Institute in partnership with Project Paradigm and the Community and Disability Support Circles would like to invite you to a course on child sexual exploitation: how it’s defined, how to identify it and how to respond to it.

This workshop looks at the current body of research in both an Australian and overseas context and covers the following key elements:  

  • Definitions and exploration of processes of control used in CSE. 
  • Common risk indicators found to be present in cases of CSE. 
  • Examining stereotypes and the use of language when responding to CSE. 
  • The impact of sexual exploitation and the needs of young people when considering intervention. 
  • How to risk assess specific cases to enable an informed approach to intervention. 

Content and trigger warning: 

 This training is intended to provide professionals with a good working knowledge of the complex nature of child sexual exploitation and as such the content covered will include the following topics; sexual violence, rape, power, child sexual abuse, child abuse and drug & alcohol use. This will also involve discussions about real life cases which is intended to help participants understand the very real impacts for children and young people in these situations. These topics and the material covered can at times be uncomfortable, and whilst every effort has been made to alert attendees to sensitive and traumatic material, we cannot foresee which elements of the content may be potentially triggering, especially for those with lived experience. We encourage participants to consider at their own discretion whether this training is appropriate for them.
