Gather information on how to construct a collaborative community action team to serve high-risk missing and child sex trafficking victims. Explore how a missing child’s path to becoming a sex trafficking victim intersects with the child protection, law enforcement and juvenile justice systems. Identify opportunities within those systems for prevention and engagement. Training includes building an action team; developing victim recovery tools and interviewing approaches for victims. Examine the complex, layered exploitation these victims endure and how the trafficker and buyer capitalize on this victimization. Discover how traffickers recruit, groom and maintain control of their victims and what motivates the buyer to purchase a child.
The deadline to register is April 3, 2019. During the training, you will engage in a group exercise to develop your own local response for child victims of sex trafficking.
Upon completion of this training, you will be able to: * Individually or as a system, develop a high-risk victim response to child sex trafficking * Demonstrate the correlation between chronic runaways, repeat victims of sexual abuse, and children victimized through sex trafficking * Utilize effective interview techniques for recovered high-risk victims of sex trafficking
Training is designed for human trafficking task force members, law enforcement investigators/uniformed officers, tribal partners, social service workers/providers, prosecutors, NPO/NGOs direct service providers, and medical and educational community members.
