Human Trafficking: 2019           1.5 CE

 

If social workers are to assume a leadership role in ensuring and promoting human rights, they need to be knowledgeable about human trafficking and modern-day slavery and apply their tools and skills broadly and creatively, taking into account issues of culture, power, privilege, and oppression. This effort includes collaborating across professions; intervening in local, state, and national policy arenas as advocates and thought leaders; recognizing, assisting, and supporting victims and survivors; and galvanizing others to do so as well.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will gain an understanding of the reach of modern day slavery in their own community
  • Attendees will be able to undersatnd the difficulty in correctly identifying hidden victims of trafficking
  • Attendees will gain an understanding of the services provided/not provided for survivors
