Combatting Human Trafficking Through Interagency Collaboration
Cross-system collaboration is crucial to developing effective efforts to address human trafficking. The Children’s Bureau's podcast Interagency Collaboration to Address Human Trafficking highlights an integrated approach to preventing, identifying, and responding to human trafficking across the service continuum.
Interagency collaboration increases each service provider's ability to provide successful interventions. The Miami CARES project unites 12 agencies into a coordinated child welfare system designed to work with at-risk and trafficked youth in Florida's Miami-Dade County. This podcast shares best practice techniques and lessons learned and enables professionals in the field to identify ways in which agencies can build their collaborative capacity.
The podcast covers the following topics:
- Communicating between agencies
- Providing therapeutic services
- Recruiting and training foster families
- Achieving interagency buy-in
