Human trafficking is a worldwide, prevalent phenomenon. There are varied forms of human trafficking with which clinicians should be familiar and different signs that they can identify when they encounter individuals they suspect are human trafficking victims. These victims may resist or avoid altogether disclosing their circumstances to providers. Clinicians can help these high-risk clients by being knowledgeable about different aspects of human trafficking and understanding how best to intervene in suspected cases.
This learning material is designed for those practitioners who are interested in recognizing types of trafficking, knowing what international, federal, and state las apply to victims and traffickers, learning about service available to victims, and implementing screening and counseling techniques with survivors.
