The Application of the Stages of Change Model When Working with Commercially Sexually Exploited Youth (CSEY)

Thursday, June 1, 2023
2 - 3:30 p.m. CST

The Stages of Change Model is known as the best practice framework for understanding and affecting change when working with victims of Commercial Sexual Exploitation, but little guidance and training is provided to practitioners who work with this vulnerable population. This webinar will provide an overview of the model and practical interventions for working with Commercially Sexually Exploited Youth (CSEY) and their families. This is an intermediate training where CSEC 101 is the advised prerequisite.
