Trauma Responsive Treatment for Victims of Exploitation

Human Trafficking thrives on confusion. In the place of actionable data and mobilized resources, we have misaligned systems telling an inaccurate story. For victims and the professionals who support them, the healing process can feel overwhelming.

Compounding the trauma, resources & treatment often lay behind systemic barriers. However, the tools to solve this problem already exist. Healing Exploitation will guide attendees through an interactive Human Trafficking scenario based on actual Michigan cases. We will explore trauma’s disorienting effect on three systems: the brain, the body, and our bureaucracy.
