Free Webinar: Understanding the Complexities of Commercial Sexual Exploitation

REGISTER – Monday, January 30th – 2:00PM-3:30PM EST

In support of National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month in January 2017, OJJDP, in conjunction with MANY and the Wichita State University Center for Combating Human Trafficking (CCHT), will present an interactive webinar to deepen participants’ understanding of commercial sexual exploitation.

This 90-minute workshop will discuss specific circumstances that put individuals at risk of victimization and what helps them survive, and even thrive, despite experiences of abuse and exploitation.

Participants will have the opportunity to consider the pervasive impacts (biological, physical, psychological, and spiritual) on persons affected by commercial sexual exploitation and celebrate the resiliency evident in the journey from victim to survivor. Participants also will learn about tangible, intentional, and responsible actions that can be taken to support those affected.
