National Academies Release Guide for Providers of Support Services to Young Victims of Commercial Sexual Exploitation from OJJDP:

Instances of commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors have been reported in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. These activities are not only illegal, but also result in immediate and long-term physical, mental, and emotional harm to victims and survivors. With support from OJJDP, the National Academies’ Institute of Medicine (IOM) and National Research Council (NRC) have released a guide for victim and support service providers who work with children who have experienced, or are at risk of experiencing, commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking. The guide highlights key terms, risk factors and consequences, emerging service strategies, challenges of providing services, and recommendations for how victim and support service providers can improve the prevention, identification, and response to these crimes
