423 The Connection Between Human Trafficking and Corrections: Effective Interventions*

Human trafficking is a growing reality in many communities and, unfortunately, correctional institutions are a primary recruitment venue. Many victims suffer from serious mental and medical health conditions, lack trusting relationships, and are reluctant to self-identify as a victim. They cycle in and out of correctional systems on prostitution and drug-related charges. This session will help staff address this issue by instituting policies, training, and other interventions that help break the cycle of victimization.
