Child sexual abuse and online sexual exploitation are prevalent in all areas of the world that have been studied. At some point, social service workers are likely to encounter victims of abuse and exploitation and to work with their caregivers and families. In doing so, it is critical to be aware of factors that render children and adolescents vulnerable to sexual abuse and online exploitation, recognise possible indicators of victimisation, and adopt a trauma-informed, rights-based approach to working with children and families who have experienced abuse or exploitation.

The webinar will address the following key questions:

  • What are the definitions and dynamics of child sexual abuse?
  • What are common forms of online sexual exploitation?
  • What are the common risk factors and potential behavioural indicators that may signal victimisation?
  • Which technics of grooming are used by offenders?
  • What is considered under the concept of trauma-informed care?
  • How should trauma-informed strategies be applied in working with abused/exploited children?
Presenters from the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC) will also provide an overview of the organisation and its programs. ICMEC is a leading global organisation, working around the world to advance child protection and to safeguard children from sexual abuse, exploitation and abduction. ICMEC’s varied programme response through research-based advocacy, training, technical assistance and a collaborative approach to addressing these issues, empowers and equips global partners – including frontline social service workers, government, academia, law enforcement, healthcare workers, teachers, school administrators, private industry and the NGO community – to make the world a safer place for children.
