This course is appropriate for direct service, clinical providers, foster parents, parents, administrative personnel in health and human service settings, medical personnel, legal professionals, people in the community or who interface regularly with the public.
Presented by the Chair of the Development Committee for SAFE Coalition for Human Rights and offered exclusively through the Global Institute of Forensic Research, this On Demand course will provide attendees with a solid introduction to the dynamics of risk and recovery for human trafficking victims while earning 2 hours of valuable Continuing Education Credit.
