Additional Information

Human Trafficking is the largest criminal industry in the world, generating $150 billion a year word wide. Los Angeles is a hotspot for human trafficking. Often, Healthcare providers are among the few people who interact with victims while they are being enslaved. This program will cover the definition of human trafficking and the common types, and personal characteristics that increase vulnerability to become a human trafficking victim. Common myths and misconceptions about human trafficking will be discussed as well as the role of the healthcare provider in identifying and assisting victims. Finally, we will discuss the importance of trauma-informed care in working with survivors.


 At the conclusion of the program, the participant will be able to:

  1. Define human trafficking and outline characteristics that may increase vulnerability to human trafficking.
  2. Describe potential signs of human trafficking.
  3. Discuss the role of the healthcare provider in identifying and responding to human trafficking victims.
