Identifying and Working with Survivors of Human Trafficking

  • Eastern Michigan University Boone Hall Ypsilanti, MI 48197 United States (map)

Course Description:

Human trafficking cuts across all avenues of race, gender and cultures.  Too often, the victims of trafficking are treated as criminals rather than as victims who have been exploited.  Today’s main focus is on victims of Rape Trafficking, especially as it focuses on young people.  Victims of all arenas of trafficking suffer acute PTSD due to the sexual, physical and psychological trauma endured through their victimization process.  Some Social Workers deal with victims without realizing that these folks are being exploited.  DIscussion topics will not only touch on those in care but pre-care and after-care.
