Training Description

In this workshop, participants will participate in discussion around challenges and promising practices in serving youth in the child welfare system who have been found to be victims of human trafficking. During the presentation, presenters will cover such topics as, the use of safe houses and safe foster homes for placement, how to best prepare youth for life after foster care and how that differs from the more traditional independent living population. Presenters will also discuss the need for systems to encourage creative thinking when developing extended foster care plans for this population.
