A two-day virtual workshop featuring high interactivity with faculty and fellow trainers.

The majority of trafficking victims have contact with a health professional while being trafficked. Yet, most health professionals have never been educated about trafficking. To train millions of practicing clinicians and trainees, more trainers, with content knowledge on human trafficking and teaching skills, are needed.

This academy will equip public health and healthcare educators with the content knowledge and teaching skills to train health professionals in their communities to respond to human trafficking. Trainers who attend this workshop will learn to train on the “Core Competencies for Human Trafficking Response in Health Care and Behavioral Health Systems” established in February 2021 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Course director, Dr. Hanni Stoklosa, is one of the primary authors of this document.


Day 1
October 24, 2024:

  • Discuss how to teach a public health approach to human trafficking.
  • Explore frameworks for teaching others about human trafficking identification and care as well as exploring their biases.
  • Identify barriers that prevent clinicians from identifying potentially trafficked individuals.
  • Apply learning principles and curriculum design to your teaching session.
  • Develop a group teaching session on a specific topic.

Day 2
October 25, 2024:

  • Discuss trauma-informed care and how to teach it.
  • Recognize the role of culture in caring for individuals experiencing trafficking.
  • Develop a human trafficking protocol at your institution.
  • Analyze your community and identify needs for responding to human trafficking.
  • Create an action plan to expand the current response in your healthcare community.
  • Present your group teaching session to your peers.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Evaluate personal training strengths and areas in which to improve.
  2. Define factors that promote adult learning. The workshop will model adult learning strategies being taught, including case analyses, peer feedback, polls, group activities, and games.
  3. Broaden your community of clinician-educators within human trafficking education.
