Continuing Ed: Intersection of Drug Endangered Children (DEC) and Human Trafficking
Did you know that Human/Sex Trafficking and DEC intersect? Did you know that a large majority of the children trafficked have parents, caregivers or family members also using legal or illegal substances? Did you know that many trafficking victims also use drugs for a variety of reasons?
There is a disconnect across the country on how substance misuse and trafficking are connected and what professionals and volunteers can look for and how they can help. This one-hour presentation will look at both drug endangered children and human/sex trafficking individually as well as their intersections to increase knowledge of the issues as well as ideas of how to identify and help these at-risk children. Presenters will provide data, information, and examples to round out the picture for participants.
