Women and Girls' Network's CPD Accredited Training: Child Sexual Exploitation: A Trauma Focussed Approach

About this Event

About Women and Girls' Network's Child Sexual Exploitation Training

The independent inquiries into Child Sexual Exploitation in Rotherham and Manchester have exposed the prevalence and impact of child sexual exploitation on the lives of young people. A key recommendation from both inquiries has included the need to increase professional’s awareness of child sexual exploitation.

Women and Girls Network has developed this short course aimed at Practitioners who are working directly with or are responsible for the safeguarding of girls and young women in London.

The training aims to increase participants awareness of sexual exploitation as a form of sexual abuse, enabling them to identify vulnerability and ricks indicators to better enhance practitioners ability to safeguard young people at risk of CSE.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the course participants will be have:

● Discussed own and society’s attitudes, beliefs and values to young women, sexual activity and sexual exploitation

● Defined child sexual exploitation

● Increased awareness of what makes young women / people vulnerable to sexual exploitation

● Increased awareness of the global impact of trauma as a consequence of CSE from a neuroscience perspective.

● Increased awareness of the clinical conceptualizations related to impact of trauma

● Be aware of the law, guidance, policies and procedures relating to sexual exploitation and young women / people

Who is this training for?

These courses have been developed for front-line staff, working directly with Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) within London organisations. Please note due to funding requirements, this one day free course is only available to practitioners  who are working directly with or are responsible for the safeguarding of young people in Hounslow.

Due to the level of demand for WGN training, and to ensure that as many organisations as possible are able to benefit from accessing training,  it is usually not possible to offer individual delegates a place on more than one training course within the same academic year.

Please note that applying on Eventbrite does not automatically gain you a place on the course. There is an additional shortlisting process we have to undertake to ensure the criteria set by our funders have been met before offering a place to an applicant.

Please apply early to avoid disappointment, as many of WGN’s courses are over-subscribed and the application process may be closed early as a result.

What is the cancellation policy?

Please note WGN training courses are frequently oversubscribed and, when possible, we would like to offer places to other delegates on the waiting list. Therefore, if your application is successful and a place is allocated to you but you cannot attend the training, please notify us as soon as possible.

Occasionally WGN may decide to cancel a course if the number of delegates attending would mean that delivery would not be cost-effective. We endeavour to give all delegates as much notice as possible of cancelled training.
