Human Trafficking and Commercial Sexual Exploitation Training

Mission Kids has partnered with the Salvation Army’s ‘New Day to Stop Trafficking’ and the Victim Services Center of Montgomery County to offer social service agencies with a Collaborative Workshop that provides an overview of the complex issue of sex trafficking and the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC). The goal of the 2-hour workshop is to empower social service providers to identify and response appropriately to victims of exploitation.

Workshop Learning Objectives include:

  • Participants will learn about the federal and state laws in place related to the sex trafficking of minors and adults, and be able to legally define the term ‘sex trafficking.’
  • Participants will examine the vulnerabilities and risk factors that make a person more susceptible to being trafficked. Participants will also learn to identify the red flags and indicators of sex trafficking among minors and adults.
  • By understanding the methods of recruitment and conditioning used by traffickers, participants will be able to better comprehend and respond to the complex trauma experienced by survivors.
  • Participants will learn to engage with survivors in a culturally competent, person-centered, and trauma-informed manner. Participants will also be provided with resources to utilize when working with survivors to improve comprehensive and cohesive care across disciplines.
