    Human Trafficking Training

    Join the Michigan Counseling Association for a 1.5 hour workshop on human trafficking.  Together we will: 

    • Understand the types and venues of human trafficking in the United States.
    • Learn to identify victims of human trafficking in health care settings.
    • Learn to identify the warning signs of human trafficking in health care settings for adults and minors. 
    • Discuss resources for reporting the suspected victims of human trafficking. 
    By the end of the session, you will be able to define human trafficking, understand how and where it happens, and identify and respond to adult and minor victims in healthcare settings.
