Aim: This dissertation aims to explore the effects of Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) and their implications on social work practice in the United Kingdom (UK).
Background: CSE has become a major concern globally with children becoming victims to various types of sexual predators or perpetrators. Moreover, sexual exploitation can be difficult to identify, with signs and symptoms being mistakenly for risky teenage behaviour (NSPCC, 2011: Ireland and Alderson, 2015).
Method: A systematic literature searches and review on the topic utilising keywords was carried out, using a number of resources. Ten final articles were included in the review after the application of the inclusion and exclusion criteria.
Results: It can be suggested that CSE is a form of sexual abuse that is similar to any other type of abuse but its prevalence and awareness have not been publicised due to cases being under-reported in the UK and the world at large.
Conclusion: CSE requires more public awareness campaigns and support for the victims to get their lives back on track through effective multi-agency work. Further research is recommended to explore the evidence in this area.
