Date/Time: Friday, September 23, 2022 5:00 AM - 6:30 AM
Description: There are many reasons a survivor of trafficking might seek help for their substance use. Service providers, including domestic and sexual violence programs, can play a key role in providing access to trauma-informed support for survivors through strategic partnerships with substance use services. This webinar will highlight collaborative strategies to support survivors in the state of Vermont and West Virginia communities, led by advocacy services and antihuman trafficking local and state task force collaborations. As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to: a) Describe the intersection of substance use and trauma with human trafficking in the context of domestic and sexual violence. b) Apply a trauma-informed approach to support survivors of human trafficking who are also experiencing substance use. c) Identify potential partnerships to support survivors of human trafficking who struggle with their substance use. d) Explore strategies to enhance collaboration across barriers and challenges, based on the experience of communities in Vermont and West Virginia. Utilize resources to help build or expand collaborations to support survivors of human trafficking. For information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
