Human Trafficking Awareness with Ethics Class

(ONLINE) 

Why Human Trafficking Education and Ethics?   
In addition to continuing education, State Law requires all individuals licensed under the public health code to complete training on how to identify and report human trafficking. All licensed massage therapists in Michigan must complete this training.
A One-time Training Requirement  
Separate from CE, the human trafficking rule applies to both initial and renewed licenses. As with CE, the State randomly audits for documentation of completing the training.
And CE Requires Ethics  
All massage therapists in Michigan continuing education requires 1 hour of Ethics to renew a massage license. This class will satisfy both requirements.

Course Description
As the massage profession has increasingly become a part of our health care, it is important that massage therapists have an understanding of how to identify and report suspected victims of human trafficking. This course will explore the human trafficking industry and how it operates in the United States. 
The class will help you understand different types and venues of human trafficking in the U.S. You will learn how to identify warning signs and victims of human trafficking in health care settings. Most importantly, you will know when and how to report suspected victims of human trafficking.
This human trafficking training will satisfy the State Law requiring individuals licensed under the public health code to complete training on how to identify and report human trafficking. 
In regards to Ethics, it is imperative that today’s massage therapists are able to establish and maintain professional relationships with their clients. Acknowledging the importance of therapeutic boundaries while working in a profession of compassion and kindness can be a tricky balance to maintain. Using real life situations, this class will discuss best practices in navigating difficult conversations in your treatment room.
