Youth in Alameda County who enter the foster care system through the Assessment Center or are awaiting a change in placement have special needs that surface within the context of the milieu setting while they are transitioning placements. This training provides information about key ways to engage and work with exploited youth within a milieu setting. This training will discuss the Commercially Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC) in Alameda County Social Services. We will describe how societally imposed racial differences exist amongst CSEC youth in the foster care system. The training will describe the benefits of using harm reduction and safety planning with youth who “AWOL” specifically from the milieu floor at the Assessment Center. This training will discuss approaches to engage and provide support to CSEC youth at the Assessment Center.
