Strong and Thriving Families: 2019 Prevention Resource Guide

Strong and Thriving Families: 2019 Prevention Resource Guide
Electronically published journal article, but not part of an issue

No

Abstract

The US Department of Health and Human Services’ Children’s Bureau developed this Resource Guide to support service providers in their work with parents, caregivers, and their children to prevent child abuse and neglect and promote child and family well-being. The Resource Guide primarily targets community-based child abuse prevention professionals who work to prevent child maltreatment and promote well-being. However, other professionals, including policymakers, parent educators, family support workers, healthcare providers, program administrators, teachers, child care providers, mentors, and clergy, may also find it useful. It includes information about trauma, human trafficking, family homelessness, and youth-related issues. The guide is also available in Spanish.

Educating Emergency Department Staff on the Identification and Treatment of Human Trafficking Victims

Educating Emergency Department Staff on the Identification and Treatment of Human Trafficking Victims
Electronically published journal article, but not part of an issue

No

Abstract

This journal article discusses a project that looked at the efficacy of an online training module designed for emergency department (ED) personnel to screen for human trafficking victims. The project team developed this training module because evidence shows most trafficking victims receive medical treatment in emergency departments while in captivity; however, medical personnel are unprepared to identify and treat victims. They tested the module in two suburban hospitals with 75 ED medical personnel, where they found almost 90% of the participants had no previous training on human trafficking. Less than half of the participants stated they had a comprehensive understanding of human trafficking before the intervention, with an increase to 93% after education. The training significantly increased the confidence of the participants to both identify and treat human trafficking victims.
