STEP 1: Attend the November 17, 2023 live event

The Wayne State University School of Social Work Office of Continuing Education invites faculty, staff, students, alumni, and community members to join Dr. Dena Nazer, MD for this training titled "Human Trafficking: Working Together as Partners of Excellence for Better Identification and Prevention". 

The prevalence of human trafficking has reached alarming levels in the United States. To address this widespread crisis, individuals licensed or registered by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA); e.g., physicians, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, and professional counselors, all have a new continuing educational requirement that must be met when seeking initial or renewal of an individual’s licensure or registration.

This presentation will help attendees meet the requirement of licensing in the State of Michigan through:

  • Understanding the types and venues of human trafficking in Michigan and the United States.
  • Identifying victims of human trafficking in health care settings.
  • Identifying the warning signs of human trafficking in health care settings for adults and minors.
  • Identifying resources for reporting when suspecting a child is a victim of human trafficking.
  • Dispelling myths, unlearning, and relearning together throughout this talk

CONTINUING EDUCATION: Attendees can obtain 2 social work CECH upon completion of the training, payment receipt and passing of the post-training quiz. All attendees seeking CE's must sign-in at the event vai the link posted in the chat and stay for the full duration. Attendees will receive the payment, and post-test/evaluation links at the conclusion of the training. A CECH certificate will be emailed within 7 - 10 business days after the event. This event has been approved by the MI Social Work Continuing Education Collaborative under CE Approval #: MICEC-0058.
