Venue: Zoom
Date: 17th November 2020
Time: 12noon - 1.30pm

The Social Care Council invites all Registrants to join our Lunchtime Seminar presented by Dr Jacqui Montgomery-Devlin: Potential Impediments to the Recognition of the Sexual Exploitation of Young Males under the age of 18 (PhD research thesis)

A growing body of research has shown that the discourse on child sexual exploitation (CSE) continues to be female-centric despite some attempts to raise the plight of young males as victims of this phenomenon.This thesis addresses this gap by examining the potential impediments to the recognition of CSE in young males under the age of 18. The central focus of this study is to identify barriers to disclosure by young males and inhibitors to identification by professionals, encompassing an exploration of the existence of any relationship between the two.

Key areas covered will include:

  • Stereotypical assumptions regarding masculinity
  • Level of awareness impacting recognition
  • The impact of perpetrator gender on recognition
  • Criminality
  • The influence of paramilitary gangs on recognition
