This workshop serves to educate and train regarding a hidden facet of child sex trafficking not normally discussed: familial trafficking, as well as some of its more severe psychological effects and appropriate response in the classroom. Pimp-based trafficking is usually what is discussed regarding CSEC; yet familial trafficking manifests differently with different signs, symptoms, and response. In addition to being a school psychologist and mental health clinician, the presenter is a survivor of familial sex trafficking in early childhood and is an advocate and public speaker. In the spirit of the conference, she will also be discussing self-care and vicarious trauma when working with students who have been trafficked.
