Event description
THE INTERSECTION OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

About this Event

Many victims of human trafficking report that their trafficker is an intimate partner. A 2009 report from the U.S. State Department showed that “almost 70% of adult female trafficking victims experienced domestic violence prior to being trafficked.” It is important to recognize that human trafficking and domestic violence don’t occur in silos – rather, they both occur on a continuum of violence and the pattern of behaviors that both abusers and traffickers use to exert power and control over a victim can overlap. Despite the similarities, there are also differences. Our guest speakers, Tameika McCoy, MA, CA, and Dana Vandervelde, MSW, will discuss these differences so that we can properly identify victims and provide care and services that would most effectively meet their needs.

This presentation is part of the 2nd Annual Medical Symposium on Human Trafficking scheduled for February 4 - 8, 2020. For the complete list of class offerings, please visit: ImPACT Virginia. The Symposium is free and open to the public.
