Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children: Identifying Victims

Archived On-Demand Webinar
Accredited for 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
Credit Offering Period:  March 2018 - March 2019


Physicians and other medical professionals are in a unique position to look for the signs that someone could be a victim or even a perpetrator of illegal sexual exploitation. This modern-day form of slavery occurs throughout the world, including in our state, and often involves children and teenagers; in 2016 in Indiana, minors comprised 37.3 percent of victims in sex-trafficking cases reported to the National Human Trafficking Hotline. This workshop will improve your ability to identify possible victims and perpetrators and to report suspected sex trafficking.
