Abstract (Summary)

Female youth all over the world and in the United States are being trafficked for the use of labor or prostitution. Their experiences entail rapes, violence, abuse, and torture while their traffickers reap extensive monetary compensation. These adolescents often times cross the path of child social workers and go unnoticed or do not receive the appropriate level of care due to the lack of knowledge for the experiences of the youth. Therefore, this curriculum will provide awareness training on Commercial Human Trafficking (CHT) for child social workers. The thesis curriculum will offer an introduction to CHT, the trafficking underground system, the abuse and effects experienced by the youth, and the best practices to assist this population. In addition, a cultural competency is included.
