Description

Human Sex Trafficking: The Medical-Legal Intersection with Trauma Informed Solutions

Pop-Up Public Health Spotlight

January is Human Trafficking Awareness month.

Join us for an interactive conversation with Shea Rhodes, Esq, FCCP and Survivor Leader Tammy McDonnell. We will discuss the magnitude of human trafficking in our region and learn why cities like Philadelphia are potential hotbeds of trafficking activity. Focus will be on how human sex trafficking commonly presents in order to identify potential victimization. Clinicians and all public health champions can become allies in the multidisciplinary efforts to eradicate the insidious crime of gender-based violence.

Program objectives:

  • Define Human Trafficking and understand various forms of trafficked persons
  • Recognize how sex trafficking commonly presents and identify indicators of potential sex trafficking victimization
  • Understand and apply Federal and Pennsylvania laws on trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation
  • Appreciate the role in identifying victims and mitigating trauma
  • Implement principles of trauma-informed care into everyday work function

This event is co-Sponsored by the College of Physicians’ Section on Public Health and Preventive Medicine and Institute to Address Commercial Sexual Exploitation at the Charles Widger School of Law, Villanova University Public Health.
