Training is available to social service providers, health care providers, law enforcement, and community groups at no cost. There are several training options available, including but not limited to:

This presentation is perfect for community groups and can serve as an introduction to the issue for both providers and law enforcement.
  • Indicators and Screening – This advanced, interactive training focuses on providing participants with the information and skills to "look beneath the surface" to identify potential victims.
  • Practice Considerations – This advanced training is geared toward providers and is focused on ethical and trauma-formed practices when working with victims of trafficking.
