This course is intended to teach individuals, families, and professionals how to identify and respond to human trafficking. The pervasive heinous crime of human trafficking has reached epidemic levels, not just around the world but in every state and every community in the United States. Predators and traffickers are well-attuned to vulnerabilities in individuals and routinely target children, adolescents, and young adults and force, trick, and coerce them into a life of trafficking. While labor and sex trafficking are both present in the United States, sex trafficking is represented the most. This course provides an in-depth view of human trafficking, how it occurs, what it looks like, and how to respond. Offered for 0.25 ASHA CEUs – 2.5 contact hours.
