Presented By: Kara Napolitano, Research and Training Manager, Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking
This training will explore root causes of the crime of trafficking and the myriad of intersecting identities, vulnerabilities, and social and systemic inequalities that can lead to trafficking in Colorado. It will also help participants to understand the behavioral cues of someone who has experienced the complex trauma that human trafficking inflicts on survivors. Understanding root causes and complex trauma is key to recognizing the crime in its many forms. This training will equip service providers and first responders with the tools they need to identify and effectively provide appropriate and compassionate care for victims and survivors of human trafficking. It will also provide suggested protocols, legal guidance, and local resources so that victims may receive comprehensive services.
