Cultural Considerations in Assisting Victims of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

April 23, 2010 @ 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This one-day workshop, facilitated by Joy M. Zarembka, MA and Tanya M. Odom, Ed.M, will explore the complex cultural, social, and economic context that prevents victims from seeking help. The goal is to increase participants’ effectiveness in identifying, interviewing, and assisting survivors of human trafficking by providing:

  • Increased knowledge and skills for overcoming those barriers and working effectively across barriers; and
  • Building skills and practical strategies to work across cultures.

Service providers, victims’ advocates, and others working to identify and assist survivors of human trafficking and violence should attend this event.

Registration fee for the event is $50.00. You can register here.
