Q: How much does the Deceptions Curriculum cost?
Q: How do I know what to teach, and how to teach it?
A: The Deceptions Curriculum comes with detailed facilitators notes, which guide the facilitator or teacher through teaching the curriculum. It is important to note that the facilitator is the person who leads students through the curriculum, but does not act as a counselor or work outside the scope of their practice as the facilitator. Sex trafficking is a very sensitive topic, and professional counselors and those trained in the subject matter should be the ones to engage in any follow up with students after the course is completed, should students disclose information about trafficking or victimization.
