Actions and Detail Panel
A Comprehensive Approach to Human Trafficking for Health Professionals
Thu, April 6, 2017, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT
The elements of human trafficking can leave a profound effect on victims. Estimates of trafficking victims nationally range from 14,000 to more than 300,000 generating approximately 31.6 billion dollars yearly – worldwide. The ability to identify victims remains a challenge since there is no common stereotype; however, commonalities exist to suggest that identification and prevention can be accomplished. Once identified victims are in need of immediate safety followed by resources for short term and long-term needs.
This seminar will discuss:
- General indicators for victims of human trafficking
- Risk factors that make youth vulnerable to trafficking
- Impact of trafficking
- Screening tools
- Impact on physical and psychological health
- Roles of law enforcement, social workers, and health providers
