Exploitation of boys and young men

Learning Event : Webinar
Online
12:00 to 13:30 Thursday, 20 June 2019

Public awareness of young people’s exploitation mainly concerns the abuse of girls by older men, whereas adolescent boys can be perceived as a threat in relation to gang involvement. The experiences of boys and young men as both ‘perpetrator’ and ‘victim’ of abuse raises challenges for practice systems and responses designed in binary terms. What does practice, policy and research tell us are good approaches and how can we apply this learning in practice? This session will focus on the risks and experiences of exploitation of boys and young men, highlighting the importance of a holistic engagement and looking beyond stereotypes. 

Designed for: Frontline practitioners and team managers working with adolescents in children’s and youth services.
