Psychology Colloquium on 'Human Trafficking: An Introduction for Providers'
The Department of Psychology invites members of the University community to attend the second presentation in its spring semester colloquium series, on Friday, March 8, from 1:30 to 3 p.m., in East Hall 104.
The program, titled “Human Trafficking: An Introduction for Providers,” will be presented by Marji Vitale, PsyD, clinical director of the Bridge Family Center.
This colloquium will educate participants on the fundamentals of human trafficking, its impact on victims’ physical and mental health, strategies for identifying victims, and appropriate responses to victims discovered. The training will raise awareness of human trafficking in Connecticut, teach common indicators of a trafficking situation, and explain what help exists for someone exploited in the sex or labor industry, as well as how to access those resources.
This presentation will be of particular interest to those who work with foreign-born and low-income residents, crime victims, and other vulnerable, underserved populations in Connecticut. The training will include a power point presentation, a video clip, and time for questions and discussion.
