The Treatment Level training is for those individuals who are social workers, case managers, or forensic interviewers who are specifically trained in sex trafficking and proving therapy to children and youth. These individuals provide ongoing trauma-informed and victim-centered services such as counseling and trauma-specific therapeutic interventions and utilize comprehensive evaluations and therapy tools such as EMDR, DBT, BioPsychoSocials, Brainspotting, and trauma therapies. For individuals in these roles who are working with youth who may be at risk for sex trafficking, assessment will assess and document scope, nature, severity, and impact of suspected trafficking and determine a youth’s safety. These sessions provide an overview of the assessment tool for youth sex trafficking and discusses considerations for screenings. In these sessions, we will explore how to respond during a crisis, methods for engaging youth who may be, or may be at risk for being, trafficked for sex, mandated reporting, and focus on conversation starters, considerations for screening, and emergency response, and rapport-building and support through working with a youth as they leave a trafficking situation.
