The Salvation Army's U.S. Anti-Trafficking Training Manual

The training manual provides seven easy to follow hour-long sessions, which include facilitator notes, as well as small group learning exercises. The sessions can be adapted for shorter training times. In addition to the training exercises, a comprehensive resource directory CD contains sample assessment forms, facts on human trafficking, a guide for lawyers, and extensive contact information on the many agencies working to assist trafficking victims.

Hands That Heal International Curriculum

Hands that Heal is a comprehensive, Christian curriculum to train global caregivers who are frontline providers of aftercare for women, children, and men that have been trafficked into the commercial sex industry. The curriculum is the result of a collaboration among more than 40 academicians and field practitioners from diverse backgrounds and organizations that address the needs of trafficked individuals. Hands that Heal can also be used as a tool to inform and inspire churches, communities, organizations, and individuals around the world to engage in the battle against the injustice of human trafficking and to help equip them to provide transformational care to survivors.

There are two editions of Hands That Heal. The Academic Edition is designed as an undergraduate or graduate course to introduce future caregivers to the wide-ranging needs of survivors of sex trafficking, as well as to enhance the skills of current caregivers. The Community-Based Edition utilizes a participatory training approach that can be used at the local level by churches, organizations and local community groups around the world.
