Stop, Observe, Ask, Respond (SOAR) to Human Trafficking
Many victims of human trafficking encounter health care and social service professionals and remain unidentified. Potential victims can present with a wide-range of physical and psychological health issues and social service needs, and the SOAR training aims to educate health care and social service professionals how to identify, treat, and respond appropriately to potential victims of human trafficking.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has scheduled ten (10) virtual and five (5) in-person SOAR trainings throughout August and September for health care providers, public health professionals, social workers, and behavioral health professionals. For more information on the launch of this resource, upcoming training dates, and how to register, please visit the SOAR webpage (http://www.acf.hhs.gov/
