Commercially Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC): Signs, Symptoms, and Early Intervention Resources


Administered by PSESD


  • Melanie Ferrer-Vaughn


Child Sexual Exploitation occurs at alarming levels in Pierce and King County; and the count is nearly impossible because the ability to recognize warning signs and intervene effectively has not been on the radar of our schools and communities until recently. No community—urban, rural, or suburban—school, socioeconomic group, or student demographic is immune.

School personnel are uniquely well positioned to identify and report suspected abuse and connect students to services. Everyone who is part of the school community—administrators, teachers, bus drivers, maintenance personnel, food service staff, resource officers, and other school community members—has the potential to be an advocate for children who are sexually exploited; but first, school community members must learn the indicators, warning signs, and how to respond when a student is an apparent victim. This course will provide signs and symptoms of commercial sexual exploitation of children
