2022 NASW NH Chapter Conference presentation handouts:
Responding to Human Trafficking in New Hampshire, by Rebecca Ayling
This presentation aims to assist learners in developing an understanding of the needs, mindset and experience of survivors of human trafficking to enable a thoughtful and productive clinical response and relationship.
Individuals across New Hampshire are experiencing human trafficking and have often gone unidentified and underserved. When ready to engage in supportive and therapeutic services, survivors share that they struggle to describe their experiences and difficulties in order to receive the care they desperately need and desire.
This training discusses the shame and self-blame that survivors experience as well as the bias and challenges clinicians face when responding. This session will then discuss resources, tools and recommendations to assist clinicians in working with survivors of human trafficking.
