Description: 

The US Department of State estimates that 600,000 to 800,000 victims are trafficked through international borders each year, which does not include countless numbers trafficked domestically within their own countries.  Human trafficking is considered the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the 21st century - a nine billion dollar industry.  The United States is one of the top three destination points for trafficked victims, the majority of which are women and children.

While domestic violence and human trafficking are different forms of victimization, many similarities and points of intersection exist.  Traffickers prey on those who suffer most from social factors like gender discrimination, violence and abuse.  This workship will provide an overview of human trafficking in the United States and in colorado and offer concrete tools and resources for effective response.

Description: 

This project will create and implement an online didactic SAFE curriculum, taught over a 15 week period of time through a series of web-based modules and followed by a two-day clinical skills workship. The course will be offered four times between 2011 and 2012, allowing for a maximum of 75 clinician's in each training wave. Overall, this project will train 300 SAFEs over the cours of 15 months. All modules created for the course, including the clinical skills workship, will be abailable to selected trainees at no cost. A goal of this project is to serve the needs of rural and tribal communities with limited access to training resources. Additionally, this project is being evaluated by Wayne State University, and therefore contains a significant evaluation component and committment. For this reason, providers who have already completed a SAFE/SANE training and are currently practicing as a SAFE/SANE, including thos who have already achieved SANE-A certification, will not be considered for participation in this course.
