This two-day training provides participants with the information and tools necessary to develop a collaborative approach to supporting commercially sexually exploited children and youth (CSEC/Y) through improved engagement skills and the use of multidisciplinary teams.
Day one of the training will provide participants with an opportunity to learn and practice engagement skills to more effectively work with children and youth who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation.
Day two will provide an opportunity to apply the information and skills from day one to collaboratively develop a framework for the facilitation of multidisciplinary teams (MDTs), which will include members who will be working together to serve CSEC/Y. The development of MDTs satisfies a required component of Senate Bill 855 (2014), which established the goal of developing a collaborative, interagency framework to coordinate interventions for youth.
Who should attend: Child welfare social workers, probation officers, and all human services professionals who make up the county’s multidisciplinary team to service CSEC/Y.
