Child Sex Trafficking: Biology of Sexual Abuse and Sex Trafficking (Part 2: Anti-Trafficking Initiative)

Presented By Leslie Allen


In an effort to better understand how a history of sexual abuse changes the victim’s physiology making them vulnerable to exploitation, we are offering “The Biology of Sexual Abuse and Sex Trafficking” training to CASA Child Advocates of Montgomery county volunteers. Advocates will learn how sexual abuse changes the victim’s body and brain, the profile of a pedophile, and the lure of prostitution to adults who have survived child sexual abuse. The is the 2nd training we are offering as a part of our anti-trafficking initiative. The Advocate does not need to have attended the 1st training (Child Sex Trafficking 101) before attending this training. Our goal is to end child sex trafficking in our community.

The key to accomplishing this goal rests in the education and support of our Advocates, who represent the best interests of these children in care and act as their voice in court.

The Biology of Sexual Abuse and Sex Trafficking training will be held on Friday, July 26, 2019, from 3 – 5pm in the CASA training room. Attendance is limited to 18 participants.

If you are attempting to register for this training and find that it is already full, don’t panic!  We will offer this training regularly throughout the year and you will receive an email invitation to register.

Date: 07/26/2019 (Fri.)
