Florida Coalition Against Human Trafficking State Outreach Coordinator, Giselle, trained 200 Child Welfare Professionals on Monday on the issue of Child Victims of Human Trafficking. Not only did the training focus on the issue of child sex trafficking, but it also explored child labor trafficking as well as domestic servitude. Social workers and counselors learned about spotting and stopping human trafficking by studying recent cases. They also spoke about the best practices for assisting victims in such cases. Our hope is that with this new knowledge, the attendees can assist in the identification and restoration of child victims of human trafficking.
As of now, our office has received positive feedback. Here are some of the comments that we have received thus far.
-“Thanks again for coming down on Monday. We all learned a lot and had an overwhelmingly positive response from those who attended. ”
-“Thanks so much, Giselle. What most people liked about it so much is that is was so “practical.” ”
A big thank you to the Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham for hosting and sponsoring this much needed training!
