These web-based, self-paced, Computer Based Trainings (CBT) are presented by The Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Stephanie V. Blank Center for Safe and Healthy Children. The series aims to educate professionals on the sex trafficking of children and teens. At this time, only the Introductory and Medical Evaluation modules of the series are available. The first module is an introduction to the topic of child sex trafficking and covers a general overview of the issue including definition and language, statistics and prevalence, risk factors, etc. The next module addresses the medical exam and medical interview of suspected victims of trafficking and is intended specifically for medical professionals. The program will eventually be expanded to include four additional modules.
