During this workshop, attendees will learn how to effectively develop strategies and tactics for identifying and engaging with male youth inclusive of black, latinx, Native American and LGBTQ+ opportunity youth. Research supports the widespread trafficking and exploitation of boys and men, however, continued challenges exist in regional and local efforts to not only identify these victims, but how to effectively engage and connect them with services. Nathan will address misconceptions regarding the intersectionality of males regarding sexual orientation and gender expression. Attendees will learn about toxic masculinity, and how to better understand and treat male youth who have been victimized by violence, as well as divert future criminal involvement, and other unhealthy behaviors. Nathan will discuss proven methodologies used by researchers to engage male and LGBTQ youth victimized by commercial sexual exploitation. Finally, he will review tactics and channels for solicitation used by traffickers that can also be used by outreach staff and other service providers.
