427 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 medical and mental health conditions, lack trusting relationships, and are reluctant to self-identify as victims.

Learn how to address this issue by instituting policies, training, and other interventions that help break the cycle of victimization.
