Labor & Sex Trafficking
March 21 2019
This seminar will explain the mechanisms of human trafficking, differentiating between labor trafficking operations and the sex trafficking model. Familiarity with the terms, the subculture and the business models equip attendees to recognize trafficking activity without the presence of a victim. Persons working in social services can be in position to identify and report human trafficking, as victims often apply for services related to their trafficking.
Once social service professionals are able to identify victims in the populations they serve, they MUST know how to respond. This section of the presentation gives best practice advice on conducting trauma-informed interviews. It also walks the attendee through the step-by-step process of contacting the Miami Valley Human Trafficking Hotline and working with law enforcement. We discuss calling, follow-up, and how to keep from re-traumatizing the victim.
Three (3) hours of CEUs are available for counselors, social workers and marriage and family therapists. Persons working in law enforcement, courts, Health Departments, clinics and human resources will also find the training enlightening.
