Human Trafficking: Foundation Training
07/12 - 07/16
It is very important for child protection and juvenile justice service workers to be aware of the problem of human trafficking and to understand the signs and behaviors children, youth, and adults may exhibit when they have or are being exploited. Children and youth in the child protection and juvenile justice system are at higher risk and are more vulnerable to human trafficking. Traffickers use a combination of threats and subtler coercion to draw people into forced labor and sexual exploitation. It is critical that child welfare workers learn strategies and tools for the prevention, assessment, and documentation of human trafficking. The overall goal of this course is for participants to understand their role as professionals working with children and families experiencing human trafficking. (6 hours with two 3-hour Zooms and pre-and end of course knowledge checks, and a reflection in Moodle)
