Many providers in clinical and non-clinical settings, child welfare workers, residential staff as well as foster parents and kin caregivers will come across youth and young adults who are victims/survivors of domestic sex trafficking.
This presentation will be co-facilitated by a human trafficking survivor who will be sharing her personal experience.
Participants will learn ways to specifically identify if someone is being trafficked, to better understand the reality of being trafficked in Ontario and provide an introduction into how to intervene effectively.
