Human Trafficking and Substance Use
April 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
This free webinar one of the “Third Friday” community training events hosted by BBCAHT and STAC to inform and engage the North Florida community and beyond. We are happy to extend this invitation to friends and colleagues – please join us!
Substance use and human trafficking occur together very often. Traffickers use drugs and alcohol to groom, lure, manipulate, and control the people they are trafficking. Victims and survivors who are substance dependent are targeted by traffickers because of this vulnerability. How can those who work with adults or youth who are sex and labor trafficked understand how to best support survivors who have substance use disorders? What do substance use disorder professionals need to know about human trafficking? How can we all do more to understand the intersection of substance use and trauma and how this can impact survivors over the short and long terms? Presenters will cover these issues and will provide ample time for discussion and questions.
Presenters: Kristina Bailey, Human Trafficking Program Coordinator, International Rescue Committee; Graciela Marquina, Community Services Advocate, STAC; Robin Silberman, Survivor Mentor, Whole Child Leon, Open Doors Outreach Network. Moderator: Robin Hassler Thompson, Executive Director, STAC.
