Shannon Wolf, Ph.D., is a Licensed Professional Counselor with supervisory status in Texas and has served as the director of Southcliff Christian Counseling Center since 2003. More recently, Dr. Wolf joined the faculty of B.H. Carroll Theological Institute as the Associate Director of Counseling Programs and Professor of Psychology and Counseling. Before locating in Fort Worth, Dr. Wolf and her family served as missionaries in Eastern Europe. Her love for culture is reflected in her humanitarian work both nationally and abroad. Dr. Wolf works with a wide range of client concerns, including various types of marriage and family matters and generational issues; however, her primary focus is in the area of human trafficking. She continues to research issues concerning trauma and recovery related to human trafficking. Her approach to helping people is Christ-centered and biblically-based.
The past decade has witnessed the Christian community and mental health field working diligently to understand and treat the many needs of human trafficking survivors. Indeed, a lack of clear understanding of the world of trafficking has led to misunderstanding of symptoms, poor treatment choice, and a level of frustration for both counselors and minsters. A more comprehensive training is needed for professionals and ministers. This Webinar is designed to better equip both of these groups in their work with survivors of trafficking.
Part 1: Understanding the Survivor
Part 1 of the Webinar will focus on understanding the human trafficking survivor. Special attention is given to development, family of origin, foundational life views, and the impact of trafficking on the individual.
Part 2: Treating the Survivor
Part 2 of the Webinar will focus on a holistic treatment model for the trafficking survivor. A treatment plan will be offered and examined. Much of the information will apply to professionals, as well as lay ministers.
- Explain how development plays a key role in trafficking victimization
- Describe the role of trauma on brain functioning in trafficking victims
