CSE-IT User Training, June 2023

June 9, 2023 | 9:00am


WestCoast’s Commercial Sexual Exploitation-Identification Tool (CSE-IT, pronounced “see it”) is a validated screening tool that helps identify children who are commercially sexually exploited (CSE). The CSE-IT is appropriate for use by any provider serving youth, including child welfare workers, probation officers, mental health clinicians, and first responders. The CSE-IT is designed to improve early identification of youth who are experiencing commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) and human trafficking.

The CSE-IT is an evidence-based CSEC screening tool.

This human trafficking screening tool was developed with the input of over 100 survivors and service providers. Moreover, the CSE-IT has been validated with data from a 15-month pilot to ensure that it accurately identifies youth who have clear indicators of exploitation. The CSE-IT has robust statistical and qualitative evidence to support its use.

This 3-hour introductory training introduces participants to the foundational knowledge about the exploitation of youth that they will need in order to be able to identify youth at high risk or who may have already experienced exploitation.
