Goal of Training|
Human trafficking is defined as the use of force, fraud, or coercion to exploit vulnerable individuals. This industry is estimated to generate $32 billion per year and is the second most profitable in trafficking-related crime (U.S. Department of Homeland Security, 2014). Human Trafficking is a chronic, systemic issue growing exponentially throughout the United States in one's very own backyard. For professionals who work in corrections, social service, or the healthcare field it is essential to understand warning signs of human trafficking and, most importantly, to properly advocate and support the survivors and those who are at risk. This training will teach professionals to be trauma-informed when working with survivors of trafficking, ultimately increasing safety and awareness in your occupational setting. After participating in this training you will gain an understanding of the following: definitions of trafficking, warning signs, common misconception, pathways, methods of recruitment, cycle of violence, trafficking hot-spots, complex trauma and other mental health concerns, and ways to take action to combat human trafficking.
Training will address the correlation between trauma, trafficking root causes, and co-occurring mental health and addition disorders. Learning how to participate in efforts to empower will be pivotal.
At the completion of this training, participants will be able to:
- Identify 3 factors that contribute to individual vulnerability for human trafficking victimization,
- List 4 tangible signs that an individual is a victim of human trafficking,
- Define 2 things that community members can do to combat sex trafficking, professionally and personally,
- List 3 treatment considerations for individuals with past traumatic experience, and
- Apply a trauma informed understanding to addressing high risk co-occurring treatment needs.
