A new way of life and a view of self-worth for the victims of underage prostitution to have a new start within their community is needed here in Clark County for the following reasons: 1) Children cannot onsent to prostitution and are considered to be victims of child sex trafficking 2) Underage prostitution is on the rise in Clark County 3) Some minors are charged as criminals instead of being looked at as victims. A. A summary of the type of consulting firm and the services you will offer The type of service that the Human Nature Project Firm will offer to the school district will be a young women empowerment program.
Our program will be a lecture group given to teen girls who are at risk of the human trafficking sex industry. We will target the schools with the largest population of girls, and as he program grows, extend to all the surrounding schools in the area. The goal of HNP partnering with the school district is to serve as prevention for young girls. The topics of discussion in our program will include: self-worth, self-esteem, and ways to stay safe, warning signs of potential human trafficking and what to do if this happens to you or someone that you know.
The goal is for the girls to become pro-active in their choices for the future and to equip them with the knowledge to make wise choices. Analyze the need The Human Nature firm is just a start into the field of prostitution and young omen who are a part of it. “Many women enter prostitution as minors and use the income to support a drug habit or to stave off homelessness. Many suffered abuse as children. They have extremely high rates of on-the-job victimization the highest homicide rate of any group of women studied thus far. ” (Moses, 2005).
The prevention of young women going into the brutal field Of prostitution is a very necessary need and one that is under recognized. Our firm will help these girls to find other alternatives to this way of life and help them move toward more positive outcomes. The Pros of Consulting Human trafficking is the fastest growing crime in the world and it can happen to anyone. Making people aware of this devastating crime, will gives a person good insightful ways to learn about this issue and be inspired to become part of the sol ution. The best way to end domestic sex trafficking is to STOP IT BEFORE IT STARTS.
Prevention education is needed and this dynamic training is for professionals who may come into contact with sex trafficking victims. Key Audiences: Teachers, Social Workers, Law Enforcement, Health Care Professionals, Concerned Community Members. Training topics can be customized to meet audience needs (“Sex trafficking Awareness & Prevention”, 2013). Human trafficking can often go unnoticed, even by individuals interacting with a victim on a regular basis. Recognizing the “red flags,” or indicators, can help alert school administrators and staff to a human trafficking situation. “U. S Department Of Justice, National Center for Missing and Exploited Children”, 2013). Problems or Issues (our specialty) There are many possible problematic situations that may arise when dealing with vulnerable populations. Young Women who are at risk to many possible ituations can be difficult to manage and even unpredictable. Everyone is at risk of coming across legal issues and a consulting firm is no different. Another risk factor is the fact that our clients may be in possible legal action and that puts the firm at more of a risk.
Therefore, it is important for the NHP to have legal assistance not only for clients but also to protect the firm. With the growing population of underage sex trafficking in Nevada, providing the appropriate service within the appropriate time may pose to be a problem. It will be vital to have the right resources to keep with the demand. There are many resources that can go into treating someone for sexual exploitation and if NHP will not be able to meet the demands it will be vital to be able to refer for different services. B.

A detailed analysis of how the content or concepts from at least five undergraduate core courses facilitated the analysis, development, and reparation of your weekly assignments and your final presentation. BSHS 401 Case Management – Dominic 250 words The Human Nature Project Consulting Firm agents do listened to its client’s problems and produce a healing activity.
For that reason, it is very important in effectively helping others. Although case managers do not practice therapy as we think of it in a counseling setting, they do have many opportunities to listen to others. At intake and during the course of the relationship as problems and issues arise, the case manager can offer listening as a first and mportant step in the resolution of clients’ problems. It is important to really listen to our client for an effective consultation. Instead, many of us are tempted to think while other people are talking. We think about how wrong they are.
We think about what they could do instead. We think about what advice we should give them and how to solve their problem. What we really should be doing is listening for the feeling and determining the degree of that feeling. For instance, a person may be angry or furious or just annoyed. Another person may be a little wistful, sad, or openly depressed. Can you tell he difference when you listen? Of course you can, when you are really listening for the feelings (summers, 2009). BSHS 471 Crisis Intervention The Human Nature project will be very involved in crisis intervention with the women that our firm works with.
Crisis Intervention will be a major hurdle these women will overcome to become productive members of society and to escape the thrones of prostitution, these women deal with crisis in their lives, usually beginning at an early age, and it will be our mission to help them to overcome these obstacles. Of the women living with violence and in the ulture of prostitution many of them live in a whirlwind of problems from early in their lives. “One hundred and thirty people working as prostitutes in San Francisco were inten/iewed regarding the extent of violence in their lives and symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Fifty-seven percent reported that they had been sexually assaulted as children and 49% reported that they had been physically assaulted as children. As adults in prostitution, 82% had been physically assaulted; 83% had been threatened with a weapon; 68% had been raped while working as prostitutes; and 84% reported current r past homelessness. ” (“Prostitution, Violence, and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder,” 1998). Many of these women feel they have no escape and that is what our organization plans to help them overcome. “Of the 130 people interviewed, 68% met DSM Ill-R criteria for a diagnosis of PTSD.
Eighty-eight percent of these respondents stated that they wanted to leave prostitution, and described what they needed in order to escape. ” (“Prostitution, Violence, and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder,” 1998). Escaping the daily crises that these women live with will be difficult and our organization will take the ecessary steps to help them move forward with their lives. “There are many barriers to exiting sex work. Economic factors are the biggest of all. Drug Addiction and inadequate housing also seem prominent. Partners may want (or insist) on Continuing involvement. Sex work can have become an entrenched lifestyle.
There can be a loss of social support ne?orks to ease transition into ‘normal’ society – and indeed some sex workers gain social support within sex work. Exiting can be difficult, too, because sex workers may not want to approach services they feel will judge them. And some – articularly those on the streets ” lead chaotic lives and find it difficult to engage with services. ” (Mayhem & Mossman, 2007). The HNP will do whatever is necessary to help these women to find an easier, softer, and more beneficial way for them to exit the life situations of constant crisis that they go through by utilizing all of our expertise to do so!
BSHS 421 Cultural Diversity & Special Populations ” Liz 250 words In the past, diversity was not recognized as a necessary component of education. In previous years, the United States has been thought of as a country whose people were mainly of wo races, black and white. The truth is America is a nation where citizens come from every nation of the world, and practice every known religion. Its important to have diversity in the classroom because our society has become so diverse itself.
While many people consider diversity to be a combination of different races, there are actually many different classifications of diversity, all having significance in a classroom. (“The Justice Department at Risk Teens”, 2012). Some types of diversity include national origin, ethnicity, different languages spoken, religion, and even gender. Its important as an ducator not only to teach some of the cultural differences of diversity but also learn as well. There are many different definitions for Cultural Diversity but they basically all mean the same thing – being different.
Cultural diversity is the makeup of various social structures, belief systems and strategies that other cultures use to adapt to life situations in all parts of the world. In other words, as our textbook called it the multiculturalism of a group or organization or region. (Parvis, 2005) The definition from the dictionary website says that cultural diversity is the ethnic, gender, racial, and ocioeconomic variety in a situation, institution, or group; the coexistence of different ethnic, gender, racial, and socioeconomic groups within one social unit.
No matter what definition is read it will have the same factors or characteristics in it. Sometimes visible to us, but more often hidden in plain sight, special populations inhabit the margins of our society, each with a unique set of needs. The Human Nature Project helps schools and organizations understand, evaluate”even manage”the programs and interventions that support these special populations and improve their circumstances. Special population is a term that is generally used to refer to a disadvantaged group.
The precise definition will vary by entity and jurisdiction.
