Pretesting a Human Trafficking Screening Tool in the Child Welfare and RHY Systems

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) just released "Pretesting a Human Trafficking Screening Tool in Child Welfare and Runaway and Homeless Youth Settings." This report summarizes findings from a study to develop and pretest a human trafficking screening tool with 617 youth in RHY and child welfare (CW) settings. The tool was found to be accessible, easy to administer, and effective in identifying trafficked youth in these settings, though additional research is needed.
