What Training is About: In this workshop, Dr. Jeremy Norwood will provide professionals in the counseling, health care, and social work fields substantive training regarding the issue of human trafficking and how it relates to their areas of practice. In response to the rise in the number of cases of human trafficking which have been reported around the State of Michigan, the Michigan legislature has required all counseling professionals to receive training on the topic of human trafficking.
Human Trafficking program participants will:
- Understand the scope and magnitude of human trafficking
- Be able to define human trafficking
- Be aware of the types and venues of human trafficking in Michigan
- Recognize the causes, indicators and potential warning signs for human trafficking
- Be able to identify resources to report potential causes of human trafficking.
Dr. Jeremy S. Norwood, J.D., is currently Professor and Chair in the Department of Sociology, Global Studies, and Criminal Justice at Spring Arbor University. His research interests focus on three major areas of human trafficking: migrant farm worker populations in Western Michigan, massage parlors in the Jackson area, and on Backpage and other websites which advertise in Michigan. Dr. Norwood has served over the years on task forces in Calhoun, Jackson, and Lenawee Counties and has given numerous talks to church gatherings, dental professionals, housing inspectors, nurses, political groups, public health organizations, and social service agencies, among many others. He is the author of several published articles on labor trafficking and has conducted over fifty full-day trainings for MMHCA on the issue of human trafficking per the requirements laid out by the Michigan Legislature.
Joyce Dixson-Haskett, LMSW, ACSW, SAP
Joyce was the first of three women to get her degree from the University of Michigan while in prison. She is now a Clinical Social Worker/Therapist, LMSW, ACSW, SAP helping others work through their own trauma. When she was a child of seven she was molested by an adult with people in the next room. Joyce believes the damage created in that room made her a target for the John that would find her later. When the sale of her body started, no miraculous rescue took place. In the end, she killed her trafficker, and was arrested. Joyce was imprisoned for life. After 17 years and 120 days in prison she was released.
