Statistics consistently report that boys are less likely to be sexually exploited, but is this really the case? When CSE campaigns, storylines, resources, posters, and leaflets are written in pink bubble writing and have pictures of teenage girls; is it really any wonder that boys don’t think CSE is relevant to them and don’t disclose as often as girls? This course takes a critical view of gender roles and stereotypes of boys and young men which are leading to professionals missing children, delaying protection, or assuming that the boys are gang members rather than being sexually exploited.
This course will also explore the impact sexual abuse has on boys and young men and will discuss the evidence for techniques to support boys and young men after sexual exploitation.
The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:
- To understand the way gender roles are affecting the identification and response to boy’s exploitation
- To understand the specific impact on boys and young men
- To explore the stereotypes and bias in male abuse victims
- To increase knowledge of techniques to support boys and young men affected by exploitation
This course is specifically for employees who work with Care Leavers and is fully CPD accredited.
