Training Overview

In this presentation, we’ll discuss the nature and dynamics of sex and labor trafficking, and the health impact on adults and children.  We’ll review possible indicators of trafficking that may be present under varied conditions, and discuss screening tools that may be helpful in identifying persons at risk of exploitation.  We’ll talk about the trauma-informed, rights-based approach to interacting with trafficked persons, and review resources available to those in need.  Finally, we’ll discuss how the COVID pandemic is expected to impact the dynamics of human trafficking and exacerbate existing risk factors for exploitation.

The course contains two modules: a content module and a resources and evaluation module. After accessing both modules, learners will earn a certificate of completion. When the certificate is available, learners will see a Certificate button on their dashboard.
