The Presenter, 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.

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.

  • 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
