The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is hosting a series of free, online WebEx training sessions on a variety of topics related to human trafficking. The information session on Tuesday, June 15, will focus on Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking: How to Identify and Respond to America’s Prostituted Youth and address the following:

Risk factors that make youth vulnerable to traffickers
How to recognize victims of domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST)
How to incorporate indicators of DMST into intake documents
How to use strength-based, trauma-informed identification and intervention techniques appropriate for adolescent survivors of sex trafficking

Melissa Snow, Director of Programs, Shared Hope International

Shared Hope International (SHI) is an Arlington, Virginia – based organization that works to end sex trafficking worldwide through education and public awareness. In 2006, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) awarded a grant to SHI to research domestic minor sex trafficking. SHI worked with DOJ-funded taskforces to assess DMST and access to victim services in ten U.S. locations, publishing its results in The National Report on Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking: America’s Prostituted Youth. In her role at SHI, Ms. Snow is working with more than fifteen DOJ-funded taskforces to identify and facilitate services for DMST victims.
