Florida State University has launched a new online Professional Certification in Human Trafficking Prevention and Intervention. This curriculum was developed as a joint project of the FSU Clearinghouse on Trauma & Resilience within the Institute for Family Violence Studies, the College of Social Work, the FSU Center for the Advancement of Human Rights and the Center on Academic and Professional Advancement. The curriculum enables professionals to develop the knowledge and skills needed to understand the dynamics of the different types of human trafficking. It also provides professionals with practical skills to increase awareness of and improve services and interventions for victims/survivors of trafficking.
This self-paced curriculum includes seven chapters and 12 hours of course content with research-based readings, case scenarios, multi-media materials, 11 new videos from experts in the field, assignments, and quizzes.

Imagine waking up every morning to people you love and feel safe with.
Then, suddenly, strangers take you away and place you in a dull, unfamiliar place to share with other girls and some of them don’t even like you. You go from feeling like you have options to feeling like you have rules to follow or else suffer consequences.
Imagine the ways a child may have suffered, but then is referred to as “ungrateful”, or “angry”, which makes them lose trust with providers, and potentially return to their trafficker.
Justice is not served unless it’s through the eyes of the victim.
A trafficker is aware of these perspectives and situations surrounding care facilities and youth not feeling supported. Just like social workers have a role and police have a role, so do traffickers. They have strategic planning, research, undercover partners, and skills that make them the best fit for their job.
Traffickers know that kids still see them as a safe haven.
Now imagine being a youth who has finally gained the mental strength to see those “helpful” people who took you from everything you knew did so because what you knew was not healthy. You write a victim impact statement to help get your trafficker locked away just to find out that, according to the law, he is not even considered a violent offender (though you know full well he did multiple violent things to you.) What now?
There are so many aspects of surviving trafficking that many of us would not even consider. We are grateful to hear from those with lived experience to ensure we are becoming the best possible advocates. This is why we’re passionate about creating resources to help us better understand the perspectives of those we’re trying to serve. They’ve already been through so much and now they need people to champion them, not students.
Included in the course:
Rotary District 5180 has developed a project combating Human Trafficking to not only educate people in the area but to educate students as to what to look for so as not to fall into the grips of traffickers.
