An Excerpt from the course on Child Sex Trafficking
As mentioned previously, many youths who become victims have risk factors that make them vulnerable. This slide shows a list of those factors. The child or teen may have been abused in the past. They may have been exposed to adverse childhood experiences in the home such as substance use. There may have been exposure to sexual abuse materials, unstable housing or homelessness and community violence. Though most victims are US citizens, some may be unaccompanied minors from countries outside of the US.
