This chapter takes a critical view of the prevention and intervention approaches used in children sexual exploitation (CSE) in the UK. The author presents an exploration of the way risk, vulnerability and educative responses to CSE may perpetuate victim blaming of children and misuse ‘prevention’ approaches. The chapter includes an examination of the evidence base, literature and practice knowledge that is available or lacking in CSE. The author will explore myths, misconceptions and biases in CSE that have led to responses and preventative practice which is steeped in rape myths. The final conclusions will move the field towards trauma-focussed, anti-victim-blaming approaches to supporting children affected by CSE.

Keywords:   Child Sexual Exploitation, CSE, CSE prevention, trauma-informed approaches, child sexual abuse, victim blaming, sexual abuse risk, sexual abuse vulnerabilities, CSE education
