These quarterly meetings are a partnership between Point Loma Nazarene University and the San Diego District Attorney’s Office.
June HT-RADAR Quarterly Meeting recap on Assets and Logic: Proposing an Evidence-based Strategic Partnership Model for Anti-trafficking Response by lead researcher – Dr. Kathleen Preble
Thank you for joining us at our first-ever hybrid Quarterly Meeting. A special thank you to Dr. Preble for sharing her findings and experience with us!
In case you missed it – This presentation was recorded, but the researcher requested that it only be shared with those who registered.
Since knowledge about human trafficking has increased over the last 20 years, so have our understandings about interventions, survivor empowerment, and attention to intersectional forces that lead to trafficking vulnerability and exiting barriers experienced by survivors. An area lacking in such advancement, however, relates to collaborative community responses (CCRs), which have notably increased evidenced-based, effective responses in other public health and health equity responses. CCRs have been part of US-based anti-trafficking efforts since the passage of the U.S. TVPA, but very little research has examined their effectiveness or how to standardize a unified collaborative effort in multidisciplinary antitrafficking teams around common goals. The proposed model utilizes health equity techniques to map existing community resources that could potentially respond to identified needs. Using logic models, the proposed process allows for interdisciplinary teams to systematically plan a response using the identified assets in their community to achieve a common ultimate goal and improve the response to human trafficking. Research, practice and policy implications are discussed.
Our Interactive Session
Our interactive session consisted of identifying resources for outpatient mental health services in San Diego with the Asset Map template provided by Dr. Preble. Below you will find the resources identified within the 30 minutes dedicated to this activity. *Please contact Dr. Preble at firstname.lastname@example.org to adopt and implement this model in your region, she is looking forward to collaborate with locations outside of Missouri.
