The purpose of this paper is to offer an overview of the research to date, including how some findings have informed practice within child care organisations in England and Wales. The challenges of applying this research are considered, along with some of its key limitations. Avenues for future research are proposed, but understanding will only progress further if research is underpinned by appropriate theory. This paper suggests promising theory that could be applied to CSE. There is also a need to consider CSE risk more holistically and not just in relation to the presence or absence of discrete vulnerability factors.
This is a brief overview of the literature to date, with a focus on how it has been applied by child care professionals.
Discusses how some findings have informed practice within child care organisations in England and Wales.
This is a viewpoint piece.
