Show and Tell: Using Trauma-Sensitive Creative Interventions with Survivors of Sex Trafficking

Stacey Diane A. Litam & Jesse E. Bach | September 23 | 1:30 - 2:30 PM | Room 2591

How can people working in the helping profession support trafficked clients that become “stuck” in the counseling process? What are the benefits to using expressive interventions? How does trauma affect the brain? This engaging and interactive presentation sheds light on recent research findings that highlight the neurobiological benefits of using creative interventions. Attendees will learn trauma-sensitive creative approaches that can be easily implemented with survivors of sex trafficking or across a wide variety of settings. Attendees will also be engaged through the use of relevant case studies, open dialogue, and small group work to practice the use of pictorial narratives.
