Human trafficking is a global issue. It affects all races, genders, ages, and socio-economic groups. Recently, researchers, policymakers, and survivors of human trafficking have been pushing to change the perception of human trafficking from a purely law enforcement issue to a public health issue.
Due to the nature of rehabilitation medicine assessment, documentation, and surveillance, rehabilitation professionals are well-suited to identify and assist trafficked persons. This course will overview concepts and definitions related to human trafficking, describe the different types of human trafficking, discuss how to identify red flags of human trafficking, and how to safely interact and intervene with a suspected trafficked person. United States Guidelines and Federal Law will be discussed to give context for appropriate identification and intervention. This course will also overview important topics, such as trauma-informed care and the multidisciplinary team referral network, and provide resources and clinical tools to empower the healthcare professional to help put a stop to human trafficking.
This course aims to improve awareness of human trafficking and educate the healthcare professional on how to identify and intervene in the best interest of the trafficked person.
