This Course Is Client-Centered 

Course 8T provides essential, research-validated information about how to work effectively with adolescent Human Trafficking victims from a client-centered perspective. The knowledge contained in this course is shared by national organizations and hundreds of adolescent survivors of Sex Trafficking.

The client-centered crisis intervention approach and the trauma-informed care you provide are unique, when working with trafficked adolescents who have been severely traumatized, sexually and physically assaulted, and stripped of their dignity and personal safety. 

As emancipated minors—victims of a traumatizing crime—these youth are guests in your office or voluntary contacts on the street, and are communicating with you of their own volition.  

Knowledge of these dynamics is critical for the success of your clinical work with trafficking survivors.

Learn the essential features of working with minors under these circumstances—those who are in danger but legally free to make independent decisions, giving them a unique measure of control.  

This course provides an actionable understanding of the 'first steps' following your initial encounter with the trafficking victim, and it paves the way for all that follows. 

Ultimately, your priorities are to facilitate the victim's safe escape from the Sex Trafficking situation; to assist the Department of Justice in successful prosecution of the trafficking perpetrators; and to obtain community and Federally assisted services for the victim which will promote recovery. 

Learn the legal difference between sex trafficking and prostitution. Understand the Federal laws pertaining to sex trafficking of children and adolescents vs. adults, applicable to all states. 


The Trafficking Assessment Format 

At the front end, the assessment and the therapeutic approach with trafficked youth differs significantly from that occurring in a normal office environment. 

Download a complete Trafficking Assessment, specifically designed for use with trafficking victims. The Trafficking Assessment in this course is client centered and research-based, for safe and effective use in your work with this special client population. 

Learn the varying perspectives of different cultures about sex trafficking, the major vulnerability of LGBTQ youth, and how to integrate this knowledge into your assessment of trafficking victims. 

Learn the specific information which you must gather to support successful prosecution of the perpetrator by the U.S. Department of Justice, and how the interagency coordination is conducted. 


Why Is Behavioral Health Now Involved in Human Trafficking? 

In the past 3 years, the U.S. Department of Justice has increased its national campaign to dismantle the organized crime rings in which Human Trafficking is a lucrative business.    

At the local and state level, the initial priorities are to increase the general public's and health care providers' awareness of Human Trafficking activity with an understanding that it is a Federal Crime. Learn what is needed to take appropriate action, and how to coordinate with the US Department of Justice to prosecute perpetrators.
