“Human traffickers ‘are’ the perpetrators; trauma survivors are the victims. This will never change without education and awareness.”
We are quickly updating the Anchorage Trauma and Dissociation Conference. The theme of the conference is: “Comprehending the Complexity of Trafficking as Trauma.”
This year’s theme focuses on awareness and understanding of the complexity of human trafficking (HT) as trauma which causes victims/survivors to endure multiple, long-lasting consequences. Expert speakers will present plenaries and workshops on numerous topics including definitions, legislative updates, statistical data, comprehensive treatment approaches, and HT myths. Learning to identify and relate to trafficking survivors/victims knowledgeably, compassionately and respectfully within daily and professional environments is vital to the recovery, well-being, and stability of traumatized individuals.
Speakers are amazing – CEU’s are available.
