Understanding and Responding to Victims/CSEC 101
My Life My Choice is a national leader in prevention and intervention around the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC). We train youth service providers on how to understand, recognize, and intervene on behalf of girls and boys experiencing the trauma of sexual exploitation. Our Understanding Victims Training gives providers a clear definition of what constitutes CSEC, how girls, boys and transgender youth become exploited and how to identify victims and help them find a path to safety.
