Description: Gang Controlled Sexual Exploitation is the sale of sex by a criminal street enterprise. While Gang Controlled Sexual Exploitation has been an on-going epidemic, there has been a struggle to identify and treat these victims. Often times, children and adolescents' mental health concerns are over looked due to stereotypes associated with gang membership. Victims often enter the juvenile justice system and struggle to address co-occurring disorders (i.e. substance abuse and post traumatic stress disorder).  It is clear without the appropriate interventions, these victims fall susceptible to further victimization and continued engagement in high risk behaviors.  This presentation will focus attention towards an understanding of gang controlled sexual exploitation to assist in the understanding and identification of victims.
