Department of Justice’s Office for Victims of Crime Training and Technical Assistance Center (OVC TTAC) Offers Human Trafficking Webinar Series for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Service Providers
Due to the coercive and abusive nature of human trafficking, it is common for victims to experience overlapping forms of victimization, particularly domestic violence and sexual assault. Despite experiencing complex forms of trauma, many survivors of trafficking are unrecognized, criminalized, or do not receive adequate services to address their complex needs.
Culminating September 24, OVC TTAC’s five-part webinar series aims to impart domestic violence and sexual assault service providers with the strategies, practical tips, case studies, and resources necessary to identify and aid survivors of human trafficking.
With topics ranging from Balancing Collaboration, Confidentiality and Privilege on Human Trafficking Cases to Collaborating with Culturally Specific Organizations to End Human Trafficking, Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, the series intends to promote a collaborative approach to victim identification and care.
Shared Hope is dedicated to providing training to increase the identification of those victimized and vulnerable to trafficking and improve the response of service providers and justice systems. Our largest training, the Juvenile Sex Trafficking (JuST) Conference, occurs this November: sharedhope.org/just2015.
