In Minnesota, coordinated response is a major component of the Department of Human Services’ new sex trafficking investigative protocol. This session will provide an overview of Minnesota’s Safe Harbor and Child Welfare response to reports of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation and how Multidisciplinary Teams can be utilized in the response. It will also outline the Safe Harbor Regional Navigator role and how your region’s Navigator can coordinate with, participate on, or otherwise assist your MDT. Whether you are part of a current MDT or another coordinated effort to respond to trafficking and other forms of child abuse, this session will help you consider next steps and increase coordination.
