Case Management and the Victim of Human Trafficking: A Critical Service for Client Success [open pdf - 61KB]
From the Study Overview: "This is the fourth in a series of Issue Briefs produced under a contract with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE), to conduct a study of HHS programs serving human trafficking victims. [...] This issue brief focuses on the importance of case management in working with international victims of human trafficking from the point of identication until a victim reaches self-sufficiency. This brief looks at the characteristics of an effective case manager along with the benefits not only to victims but also to other key stakeholders, including law enforcement and service providers. This brief also examines the challenges to effective case management and the implications for victim recovery. While much of the information presented in this issue brief may also apply to the case management of U.S. citizen and legal permanent resident (or 'domestic') trafficking victims, the focus is more directly on international victims due to the restrictions of available federal funding to this population."
