Kansas Anti-Human Trafficking Training: A Multidisciplinary Focused Approach
Friday October 11 Mayetta
(Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation’s Bingo Hall 16277 Q Road Mayetta)
A series of Human Trafficking training events will be held across the state for staff that work with at-risk youth. The training will be a full day event (8:30 am – 5:00 pm) and there is no cost to attend. This training event is designed to meet the needs of staff that work in juvenile intake, community corrections staff/officers and staff that work in detention centers as well as staff from DCF, DCF contract agencies, Child Advocacy Centers and law enforcement. The focus of the training will be to provide an overview of HT in Kansas (i.e. defining trafficking, review Kansas statutes that apply to trafficking, identification of victims, the impact of trauma on victims, define the roles of different disciplines and address the importance of collaborative intervention).
The Department of Children and Families has partnered with the Attorney General’s office to coordinate the training with the participation and support of the Kansas Department of Corrections-Juvenile Services. It will be held at nine venues in October and November, 2019. To promote coordination and local collaboration professionals from different disciplines are encouraged to attend the training together while receiving the same guidance. Seating will be limited and pre-registration is strongly advised.
