Workshop Information:

This presentation is for clinicians and administrators whose clients include populations at high risk for trafficking including women, youth, victims of crime, and immigrants.

Learning Objectives:

  • ·       Gain knowledge as to how to identify victims among clients seeking mental health treatment.
  • ·       Understand resources available to victims on a local, state and national level to refer victims of trafficking to services in the community.
  • ·       Learning goals include specific practices that are trauma-informed, safety planning with this population, as well as crisis intervention.
  • ·       Explore challenges to privilege, confidentiality and working as a part of a multi-disciplinary team.

Human Trafficking victims come from a variety of backgrounds -U.S. citizen, immigrants, women, men, adults and minors. Trafficking situations can vary from forced street prostitution to forced labor within a restaurant or domestic servitude within a suburban home.

Clinicians play a vital role in identifying potential victims of trafficking as well as connecting them to vital services. Often victims do not self-identify and it is up to the clinician to identify victims based on red flags. Identified victims present with needs for housing, advocacy within the criminal justice process, and specifically coping with the trauma of what they have endured.

By understanding the nuances of working with victims of trafficking- safety plans, crisis intervention and other practices are greatly improved to the benefits of clients. And given the complexity of trafficking cases, clinicians often become part of a team comprised of case manager, lawyer, clinician, law enforcement and others.
