Human Trafficking 101 for Mental Health Providers (Howard County)

This training will provide an introduction to working with survivors of human trafficking. This 101 training will be followed by an advanced 201 training. Clinicians that participate in both the 101 and 201 trainings will have the opportunity to join an ongoing peer support collaborative. This cohort of trained counselors will be included on a referral list of trained providers that will be distributed to the Maryland Human Trafficking Task Force partner agencies.

This opportunity will provide licensed counselors and social workers with professional development and a chance to expand their agency’s clinical services. Participation in this training series will help counselors gain task force referrals, identify at-risk clients, and provide a much-needed service for those involved in human trafficking.

Prerequisites:

Individuals must be Licensed Graduate Level Practitioners (such as LGSW, LCSW-C, LGPC, LCPC); and

Must have been practicing for a minimum of 3 years.

Attendees are strongly encouraged to take the Trauma Informed web-based training found at this link. (This training costs $35 and provides 11 contact hours of continuing education credit upon completion.)

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for licensed social workers are available from the Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence (MNADV). Attendees will receive 4 CEUs for this day of training. If you are a LCPC or LGPC, please contact your board of certification before attending the training to ensure the certificate will be accepted for your licensure.
