In 2015, Session Law 2015-279 was passed by the NC General Legislature, mandating the inclusion of sex trafficking prevention education in reproductive health education in NC schools. However, human trafficking prevention curriculum vary widely in their quality, evidence base, topics, and approach. In this 90-minute training, attendees will learn how to identify a curriculum that fits their needs and capacity, and how to evaluate the effectiveness and evidence base of a program.
Talking About Risk Factors, Protective Factors, and Safety in Human Trafficking Prevention
April 5 from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm - Register Here!
In the media and common dialogue, people often talk about risk factors casually, based on beliefs and anecdotal information. In the field of public health, however, peer-reviewed research continues to identify known risk and protective factors and best practices for talking about safety in violence prevention. Sometimes this research confirms common beliefs; other times it discredits them, or tells a more complex story. In this 90-minute webinar, attendees will learn what the research tells us about human trafficking risk and protective factors, and how to talk about safety in prevention programming.
Building Sustainable Community Through Collaboration
April 19 from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm - Register Here!
Human trafficking is a crime that often involves other related forms of violence — sexual violence, child maltreatment, and partner violence. As human trafficking does not occur in isolation from these other forms of violence, an effective community response to human trafficking will involve multidisciplinary collaboration on both prevention and response. Engaging multidisciplinary collaboration with existing anti-violence agencies and organizations ensures that your anti-human trafficking program will be sustainable in the long-term. In this 90-minute virtual training, anti-human trafficking advocates will learn how to avoid harming survivors when services are dropped by building sustainable, collaborative prevention and response strategies.
So You Want to Create an Evidence-Informed Curriculum
In the public health field, “evidence-informed” and “evidence-based” have specific meanings. As violence prevention professionals strive to have their curriculum be recognized as grounded in evidence, it becomes more and more important for us to understand what that means and how to translate research into practice. In this 90-minute webinar, attendees will learn the differences between emerging practices, promising practices, and best practices, and important steps to take to create an evidence-informed strategy.
