Specialized Services and Placement Consideration for Survivors of Sexual Exploration

This webinar introduces strategies for developing a specialized service approach and considerations when placing sexually exploited youth in care. It has been developed in response to needs expressed by state agencies for best practices and placement considerations for survivors of sexual exploitation in response to the Preventing Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families Act, Public Law (P.L.) 113-183, which requires child welfare agencies to provide a wide range of individualized and trauma-informed support services to youth who have survived sexual exploitation.
