Event description

Description

The most dominant health dimension in trafficking cases is poor mental health because of the profound psychological damage caused by prolonged trauma and somatic complaints that frequently translate into disabling lifelong physical pain or dysfunction. Additionally, victims may have undergone complex, chronic trauma for weeks, months, or years (often during key developmental time frames) prior to being seen by the clinician. Our guest speaker, Elisabeth Corey, MSW, Survivor Expert, will explain why meeting the health needs of trauma survivors requires a victim-centered, trauma-informed approach that places control and choice for the clinical encounter under the patient’s discretion. This approach will give the survivor the stabilization they need and aid in their healing / recovery.
