Human trafficking is the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act and is often called “modern-day slavery.” Having knowledge about human trafficking and what forms it exists in our community will prepare health professionals to identify and support survivors of human trafficking.

  • Traffickers and Trafficking as a trade
  • Trafficking Laws - International, Federal and State
  • Trauma informed care of the human trafficking victims
  • Ethical consideration in treatment of survivors of human trafficking
