Description

Will you be ready to serve a survivor of modern-day slavery when he or she enters your therapy office?

Human trafficking is the second-largest industry for organized crime in the world. It often happens locally, with people being trafficked by people they know from their own neighborhoods.

Far from just sex trafficking, human trafficking also involves labor trafficking, child soldiers, and organ donation.

This issue is much more common than you think and you need to be prepared to work with this unique population in your clinical practice. You may even have a client on your case load now that needs this special specialized treatment.

Understanding trauma helps, but it is not enough to provide sufficient and effective care for the struggles these survivors have endured. Trafficking survivors have a unique set of needs that differs from other cases of trauma entering your therapy office.

Complex trauma is overlaid with brainwashing and Stockholm Syndrome, providing an extremely complicated set of needs in this population. Great harm can be done both to the safety and to the mental health of this population if we fail to identify and treat their special needs.

This live webcast training will give you the tools you need to safely and skillfully guide these survivors through the process of transformation from being someone’s product to feeling like a person again.
