TraffickJam Endorsements:

We are so thankful for the opportunity to partner with TraffickJam to provide training for our staff on Creative Arts in Therapy. Our experience with them was very encouraging and life giving for the students. The session leaders were very engaging with their teaching methods and created a free and open learning environment. Our students felt encouraged by participating in the sessions, there were some healing moments throughout the week. They also felt equipped and were eager to start using their new skills immediately with our clients. It was a pleasure working with the leadership team as well. They were very thoughtful about the preparations and sensitive to the needs in our context. The whole experience was very Christ-centered as well and bathed in prayer. Overall, this was a great experience! Jenni Snyder- Rapha House Cambodia.

The TraffickJam Team was fantastic. They arrived knowing the best way to impact our girls, was to
leave a lasting impact with our Staff.
They spent an entire week training our House Mom’s, Social Workers, Cooks, Counselors, and all
those who work with our girls on a daily basis. They trained using Art, Music, and other forms of
therapy. Our Staff learned not only how to use these methods for the girls, but also how to implement
them in their own lives. It was great watching as they found deeper healing for themselves.
The more whole and free our staff is the more they can help our girls, for us that was really incredible.

The Team came with a heart to learn the culture and learn about the people they were working with.
They were honoring to our Staff and made them feel highly valued. At the end of the week the Team
rented a room at an Event Center and presented Certificates Of Accomplishment to our Staff, again
showing honor at the work accomplished that week.
The week built the Confidence, Self-Esteem, and Identity of our Staff. The team was very professional;
well trained, worked well together, were flexible when it was needed, and were so loving to
our staff.
Having our Staff honored like that, and seeing their confidence in who they are grow, left a lasting
impression with us. We are thankful for the experience and highly recommend them.

“TraffickJam’s interdisciplinary art therapy training had a significant impact in the lives of each of our team members. The confidence of our teams of caseworkers, counselors, and house parents increased significantly as they learned practical tools they could use to better the lives of children who have survived trauma.”
“Our teams of caseworkers, counselors, house parents, and aftercare support staff were able to benefit from TraffickJams’ train the trainer’ approach as they were able to learn first hand how various tools could be applied to their own lives and experience healing, breakthrough, and revelation for themselves further equipping them to transfer the information they learned over to the lives of the children they care for with greater confidence and clarity. The information and activities learned throughout these sessions continue to have a positive influence on our teams and the children we come alongside.”
