This workshop is suitable for clinicians, administrators or anyone interested in expanding therapy services to survivors of sex trafficking.  How are the approaches/assumptions in working with clients who have experienced trauma or even sexual abuse differ from best practice with clients experiencing sex trafficking?  How might what is helpful in one situation act as a barrier in others?  As we expanded and adapted our sexual assault treatment program to survivors of sex trafficking we quickly realized the large differences in the 2 populations, and their  differing  needs.   How do we adapt program services to provide for both populations.  Can you provide “trauma treatment” to youth that are actively engaged in the life? If not, what approaches are useful? Come explore the many questions and challenges clinicians may face as they attempt to expand services for victims of commercial sexual exploitation.
