Tackling Child Sexual Exploitation: Lessons from Research

Following a number of high profile cases of child sexual exploitation (CSE) in recent years, there is an increasing expectation that all professionals working with children and young people will familiarise themselves with the issue and their responsibilities in relation to this. This seminar will draw upon a range of research conducted by staff at 'The International Centre: Researching Child Sexual Exploitation, Violence and Trafficking' at the University of Bedfordshire to share what we know about the issue of CSE within the UK and to consider effective measures for tackling it.
Attendees will have the opportunity to actively engage with International Centre staff in a Question and Answer session in the second half of the seminar. The event is suitable for all individuals working with, or caring for, children and young people. No prior knowledge of the issue is required.
