The National Child Protection Training Center is offering a webinar: The Impact of Human Trafficking on Children. The session will be held Thursday, October 18th at 2pm CST. There is a $30 registration fee, which unfortunately doesn’t provide CEs for medical folks (but does for law enforcement and attorneys, so please share).
From the site:
Human trafficking is a form of slavery involving children, teens, women, and men who, through force, are required to participate in involuntary sex or acts of labor. Each year, more than one half million people are part of the human trafficking industry with more than half being children. Children who experience this crime face many significant problems. Included are sleeping and eating disorders, hearing and respiratory issues, sexually transmitted diseases, pelvic disorders, fear, anxiety, depression, guilt, shame, and PTSD’s, to name a few. In this presentation, the impact of human trafficking of children will be discussed. We will talk about how it happens, the negative trauma children face, who can help, and how to go forward.
