To respond to the demand for professional training and development of a multi-disciplinary team approach to commercial sexual exploitation/sex trafficking around the county, Rebuilding Hope! Sexual Assault Center for Pierce County will be hosting a national sex trafficking conference event for professionals who work with
children, youths and adults who experience sex trafficking. The conference will provide top-level training across multiple tracks in order to meet the educational needs of a multi-disciplinary team response to sex trafficking, including focus areas for mental health providers, clinicians, social work/service providers, advocates, first responders, law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, medical providers, forensic interviewers and community coalition mobilizers.
Tacoma/Pierce County, Washington professionals and community members have found it necessary that multiple opportunities to gain quality, up-to-date and diverse training every year be made available not only to professionals and community members from the Pacific Northwest, but also from across the United States. This conference aims to provide such an opportunity by welcoming nationwide responders to the country's sex trafficking problem in order to share valuable information across disciplines and to engage in ongoing networking in the hopes of forming a unified alliance to reducing and, ultimately, eliminating sex trafficking in our neighborhoods. We aim to ensure our workshops provide the most requested topics of interest and are instructed by the highest quality of trainers who are experienced and relevant to the current fight against sex trafficking.
