Course Outline
Description

The global issue of sex trafficking with its devastating effect on victims is also an American problem of growing proportions. While awareness of the injustice has grown dramatically in the past few years, healing intervention and aftercare for women and child survivors is far from adequate in proportion to the level of need. This workshop will focus on how people of faith of diverse professions have responded on the front lines to develop transformational models for intervention and holistic care for women and children trapped in human trafficking.

Category(ies):

  • Direct Practice: Individuals, Couples, Families and Children
  • Direct Practice: Groups and Communities
