Are there kids on your caseload that your gut tells you something is not right? Often that is the first clue clinicians have that a child is being trafficked. Parents miss it, educators miss it, and unfortunately too many therapists miss the telltale signs. This workshop will immerse you in the experiences of commercially sexually exploited youth and provide you with competencies to work effectively from a trauma-informed perspective.

In this recording, learn from Kathleen Leilani Ja Sook Bergquist, JD, PhD, LCSW, as she draws on more than 20 years of working with survivors of sexual assault. Dr. Bergquist will show you effective clinical strategies to:

  • Identify trafficked children and adolescents
  • Work with youth that are often justice-involved and/or in foster care
  • Break the trauma bond that allows the trafficker to control the child
  • Identify trauma-specific evidence-based approaches, there is no one approach fits all!

Working with these children can be complex, they often don’t see themselves as victims, and unprepared but well-intended clinicians can replace the trafficker from the youth’s perspective. As a clinician, there is nothing more rewarding than helping youth free themselves from the trauma bond of those who exploit them.


  1. Identify the signs that a child has been trafficked and determine a proper treatment plan.
  2. Create the appropriate therapeutic environment to enable the best clinical outcomes for a trafficking survivor.
  3. Summarize federal laws specific to human trafficking and identify how this information could impact clinical treatment.
  4. Utilize a strength-based treatment approach for clinical issues such as PTSD, complex trauma and trauma bond.
  5. Determine how to facilitate post traumatic growth among childhood survivors of sex trafficking.
  6. Explore the role of the clinician in supporting clients’ rights to self-determination, safety and well-being.
