Working With Survivors of Sex Trafficking

Human trafficking can involve women, men and children, leaving its victims to experience psychological problems, post-traumatic stress, helplessness and depression.

Unfortunately, Milwaukee has been identified as one of the major hubs for sex trafficking. This course offers a wealth of knowledge by providing the necessary tools to be an advocate for sex-trafficked survivors as well as for working with this population.

This course can be applied to the Professional Certificate in Human Services.
