My name is Kristen Johnson and I am the Trauma Informed worker at the Ontario Native Women’s association I work mainly with Indigenous Women who are victims of abuse and human trafficking. I work with Community members (clients) to safety plan, short and long term planning, supportive counselling and follow-up services as required. As the trauma informed worker I provide supportive, culturally sensitive and holistic services that provide a safe space for Indigenous women to address their trauma particularly for those who are survivors of human trafficking and who want to exit these situations. additionally I also provide crisis intervention, referrals to ongoing counselling, advocacy, as well as provide accompaniment to women as required including transportation as needed. When working with victims of human trafficking I educate, guide, and support these women on the effects of trauma, effective coping mechanisms, and trauma recovery procedures.
