Sex Trafficking 101: What Mental Health Professionals Need To Know  

Modern day slavery, also known as human sex trafficking, currently occurs at a rate that is 10 times greater than the trans-Atlantic slave trade in the 19th century. The International Labour Organization estimates 4.5 million people are sex trafficked globally, with over 3,000 reported U.S. cases in 2014. A 2010 study conducted by the Ohio Attorney General estimated that more than 1,000 Ohio minors become victims of sex trafficking annually. It is therefore essential that counseling students, professional counselors, and individuals in the helping profession become educated on the prevalence, cycle, and signs of a trafficked individual.

What are some indications that a client has been, or is currently being trafficked?

Which counseling interventions are trauma-informed and evidence-based?

This interactive workshop provides valuable information regarding the history, definition, prevalence, and clinical implications of providing counseling services with sex trafficked survivors. Attendees will also be engaged through active discussions of relevant case studies.
