Human Trafficking: Identification and Intervention

Erika Smith-Marek, PhD, LMFT

Course Abstract

Human Trafficking: Identification and Intervention is a 1-hour online continuing education (CE) course that details the many facets of human trafficking as well as how to identify and provide intervention to victims/survivors.

Human trafficking, commonly discussed under the two broad categories of sexual trafficking and labor trafficking, is a pervasive public health issue, both globally and in the United States. This course will examine the various forms of human trafficking, including the commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking of domestic minors and children who are foreign nationals, the commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking of adults, and the labor trafficking of adults and minors. The 25 distinct businesses in which human trafficking have been identified to occur will be explored. Estimates of the prevalence and scope of these crimes will also be discussed.

We will then explore how to identify individuals who may be victims of human trafficking, report cases, and provide trauma-informed intervention to victims/survivors. Resources available to assist providers and victims/survivors will also be provided.

Course #11-30 | 2019 | 25 pages | 10 posttest questions
