JRF 110 Helpline hosts fourth ACT to EVAC training

On Tuesday 8 and Wednesday 9 October 2019, we worked with Jordan River Foundation’s JRF 110 Helpline based in Amman, Jordan, to coordinate a training on how to identify and respond to online child sexual exploitation and abuse (OCSEA).

This training was made possible through the Advocate, Collaborate & Train to End Violence Against Children (ACT to EVAC) programme, which is coordinated in partnership between Child Helpline International and the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), and funded by The Fund the End Violence Against Children.

As requested by the JRF 110 Helpline, we explored the following topics as part of the training:

  • National and international legislation and instruments relevant to OCSEA
  • Case management and crisis intervention techniques
  • Characteristics and manifestations of OCSEA
  • Terminology relating to OCSEA
  • Online platforms used by children and young people
  • Signs of OCSEA
  • How OCSEA cases are identified and investigated by key referral partners
  • Potential impact of OCSEA on children and young people

In addition, on Thursday 10th October 2019, we co-coordinated a round table discussion. The purpose of this discussion was to enhance national stakeholder collaboration in Jordan based on the theme of responding to OCSEA.

Thank you to JRF 110 Helpline for kindly hosting us!
