This one-day, two-part training series is an introduction to DMST. Part 1 focuses on identifying children at risk for, or who may be involved in, sex trafficking in Maryland. It will explore the vulnerabilities of youth and how youth may be recruited and groomed by traffickers. It is an interactive presentation and will include a lecture, case examples and a discussion. Part 2 explores the role of pimp control and why children stay, the role of trauma bonding for survivors, the traumatic effects and symptomology among trafficking survivors, treatment models, safety planning, and clinical interventions useful for survivors.
