Human Trafficking: Awareness, Assessment and Response

Posted by Joel Krauss for College of Health and Human Services

Social work practitioners must be able to effectively identify, assess and intervene in cases of suspected human trafficking. This training will give social workers the information they need to do so.

In this training, we will discuss:

  • The scope of labor and sex human trafficking in the state, in the county and across the globe. 
  • Assessment strategies and ways to introduce intervention resources to those at risk of being trafficked. 
  • Policies and practices that might make Michigan a target of traffickers.
  • The role of Social Work in designing and advocating for human rights policies.
  • Intersectional identity, historical trauma and other concerns regarding trafficking of historically marginalized groups.
