About this Event
This training is rooted in the understanding of providing service to Commercially Sexually Exploited Children, and will be provided from a Trauma Responsive Approach with an emphasis on “whole child” care.
This workshop will focus on a few aspects of this work as a social services provider: 1) how to engage in a way to promote healing with young people who have been victimized; 2) how to respond as opposed to react to difficult settings and situations; and 3) how to avoid internalizing outcomes of clients and/or falling into secondary traumatic stress symptoms.
Workshop led by Ami Davis.
