Resource Guide to Trauma-Informed Human Services – Victims of Human Trafficking 

Identifying and Interacting With Victims of Human Trafficking
Health care providers in community clinics and emergency rooms may encounter victims of human trafficking without realizing it, therefore losing the chance to help these victims escape from their bondage. This tool provides tips and guidelines for identifying and assisting trafficking victims.

Screening Tool For Victims of Human Trafficking
This tool contains the types of screening questions health care providers should consider when trying to determine if someone is a trafficking victim.

The Mindset of a Human Trafficking Victim
By understanding a trafficking victim's mindset — molded by coercion, violence and fear at the hands of the trafficker — health care practitioners can help gain a victim’s trust so they can provide optimal care and initiate important support services to help the victim rebuild her/his life.

Messages For Communicating With Victims of Human Trafficking
This tool offers health care providers suggested messages for communicating with victims of human trafficking. Because most victims are afraid and initially hesitant to cooperate, often fearing for their lives, these messages provide strategic word choice and usage geared to establish trust between the provider and the victim.

Common Health Issues Seen In Victims of Human Trafficking
Trafficking victims may suffer from a host of medical problems — both physical and psychological — that are often neglected until they reach critical stages. This tool outlines problems to look out for.

As part of Catholic health ministry's commitment to promote and defend human dignity, care for poor and vulnerable persons and act on behalf of justice, and in support of the ministry-wide initiative, "Faithfully United Against Human Trafficking," CHA has created a card that sheds light on the injustices of the cocoa trade, and in particular, child labor and slavery, for use in employee education efforts. Themed for Easter, the card is available at no cost (free cards and free shipping) in packs of five.
