Human trafficking involves complex problems that are best understood in an interdisciplinary context. This workshop will discuss successful collaborative partnerships and provide examples of collaborative partnerships grounded in practitioner-focused research. The compilation of data that can be accessed by multiple agencies through databases and investigations can prove a practitioner’s anecdotal belief without solely relying on their training and experience. Through interdisciplinary collaboration, practitioners and researchers can discuss and join forces on the best approaches to answer questions neither can answer on their own.

Projects involving tattoo’s, buyers, and investigations in addition to others will be discussed. We will also address what has worked in our collaborative partnerships and focus on trust, integrity, and communication.
