Human trafficking is the business of stealing freedom for profit. In most cases, traffickers trick, defraud or physically force victims into providing commercial sex. In others, victims are lied to, assaulted, threatened or manipulated into working under inhumane, illegal or otherwise unacceptable conditions. It is a multi-billion dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to 24.9 million people around the world. In The U.S. the average age of entry is 15 and the average victim could be your next door neighbor. This course will focus on domestic sex trafficking, how it happens to American teens, how to identify it and how you can help a victim / survivor in your work setting.

Learning Objectives:

  • Be able to describe what sex trafficking looks like in the United States.
  • Learn to identify typical indicators of sex trafficking.
  • Discover where to turn for resources or assistance with sex trafficking victim / survivors.
