ARC - Critical issue Module 1: Abuse and exploitation

Dealing with child abuse and exploitation (especially sexual exploitation) requires a high level of skill and sensitivity. This module aims to provide guidance on essential aspects, highlighting the main forms of abuse and presenting some possible action against it.

Trainers are encouraged to adapt the module to their specific geographical or cultural context and to supplement topics with their own or locally relevant material. However, facilitators who have not recently trained or worked in the area covered by this module should carefully read through the various topics, slides, exercises, handouts, and readings before starting to plan their training activity. Please note that these materials aim to stimulate learning and discussion, and should be used in conjunction with stated policy (they do not replace it).

The ARC resource pack provides information and training materials to strengthen individuals' capacity to address the causes of children's vulnerabilities, to build effective child protection systems for use in emergencies and long-term development, and to ensure that no activities inadvertently compromise children's rights or safety.
