The evolution of the Internet and mobile technology has inadvertently provided new environments for child sexual abuse to occur. The traditional understanding of child sexual offending is changing quickly. Potential victims of sexual abuse can be secretly lured by offenders – anonymously and remotely. Sexually explicit images of children are easily obtained, traded and downloaded. Offenders can now avoid the risk of accepting a parcel containing child pornography, because in minutes they can locate and download any type of child pornography desired. This training will explore current trends of internet-related child sexual exploitation. Typology of internet sexual offenders, risk of recidivism, and treatment models will be discussed. Class size is limited to 45.
