Human Trafficking: Essential Knowledge & Skills for Social Workers   

In 2019, the state of Texas passed a law (HB 2059, 86th Leg. Session) that requires health care practitioners licensed in Texas—including social workers—to complete an approved human trafficking training course as a condition for registration, permit, or license renewal. Texas Health and Human Services approves the courses that can be offered for credit to meet this licensing requirement.

 

This training, called Human Trafficking: Essential Knowledge & Skills for Social Workers is approved by Texas Health and Human Services to meet this training requirement. In addition to satisfying the state’s human trafficking training requirement for healthcare professionals (a 1.0 hour requirement), this course offers 3.0 CEUs for social workers licensed in the state of Texas, through the TCU Department of Social Work. The learning objectives for the course are as follows:

 

  1. Define human trafficking and its subtypes, as well as vulnerabilities and typical trafficking dynamics
  2. Describe the health and mental health impacts that are often experienced by trafficking survivors
  3. Apply identification and assessment best practices to case studies
  4. Identify reporting obligations and describe how to report human trafficking

 

The asynchronous webinar uses a video presentation, case scenarios, quizzes, and other activities to meet these learning objectives. Participants will receive a certificate (a single certificate for both the CEUs and the state requirement) once they complete an evaluation of the course. This course is offered for $10. Proceeds from the course go to support human trafficking research and student training through the TCU Department of Social Work.
