About the Presenter:
Dr. Franki Reddick-Gibson is a highly sought after teacher, author, lecturer, motivator, educator, wellness coach, and conference speaker on the subjects of Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC), Racial Trauma, Multiculturalism/Diversity and Total-Being Wellness/Integration both nationally and internationally. It was her experience as a Flight Attendant working in the Far East that, initially, opened her eyes to the horror of juvenile sex trafficking. As a result, she expanded her advocacy for children to include fighting for victims and survivors of CSEC. Dr. Franki currently serves as Chief Clinical Officer for Mingus Mountain Academy, a residential facility for girls, located in Prescott Valley and Phoenix, AZ. She has developed and implemented a trauma and survivor-informed CSEC treatment protocol, “Empowerment Over Exploitation”, which is the only one in the country that uses Rites of Passage as a key component of change promotion. Dr Franki is a native of Philadelphia, PA, and graduate of Temple University who holds an earned doctorate in Psychology. She has worked in mental health for the past 25 years and is excited to share her lessons learned to help others to discover their own!Tuesday October 11, 2016Check-in begins at 8 am, presentation: 830am- 12pmMission Memorial Auditorium, 550 S King Street, Honolulu, HINo Food or Drink allowed in the auditoriumParking located: http://www.missionhouses.org/visitor-information/getting-here
