Human Trafficking 301 for Mental Health Professionals

This training is an advanced clinical training meant for participants who completed 101 and 201. Participants can expect a combination of didactic teaching, experiential learning, role-play case examples and videos. Session will focus on the importance of brain development and how complex trauma exposures, such as human trafficking, complicate the brain’s ability to engage in traditional therapy modules. Presentation includes new information on the neuroscience of complex trauma and how therapists can pass “the therapist test.” Participants will learn to build rapport and maintain an alliance using motivational interviewing (MI) strategies; differentiate a bottom-up approach vs. top down approach to clinical work; identify relevant body-based interventions; understand the role of micro-expressions in therapeutic work; and identify different “parts of self” related to dissociation and post-traumatic growth.

*Please note, this is a highly interactive training that will require providers to participate in role plays and to be reflective and vulnerable.
