Consultation for Counter-Trafficking Organizations

Have you ever wondered how to connect more deeply with your beneficiaries, whose behaviour is often baffling and inconsistent?

Does your staff struggle with issues of burnout, compassion fatigue or secondary trauma? Learn more about these and how to prevent them?

Are you interested in learning how to develop deeper trust and safety with your beneficiaries? 

Have you ever wondered what kinds of things should be in a medical kit and how to use them?

What does it mean to provide trauma-informed care?  How do we do it well?

What are the physical & mental health consequences of complex trauma and how can non-mental health professionals do to help restore and heal?

How do we approach someone who is self-harming or someone who we think may be contemplating suicide?


Relentless is available for consulting in a variety of contexts on numerous topics at the intersection of health and human trafficking. Relentless can help equip your organization, your staff, and/or your beneficiaries in developing a more robust health and wellness component to your interventions. A more competent staff is a more confident staff, which leads to improved capacity and longevity in care-giving.

“I have found Dr. Katherine Welch is “relentless” in her commitment to make an impact in the fight against human trafficking. I first met Dr. Welch at the Global Missions Health Conference in Louisville in 2010. Since that time Katherine has been an amazing resource, providing consultation specifically for ReachGlobal’s prevention project with national partners in West Bengal.

Her expertise in the field of health and human trafficking has made a huge impact in providing direction for our prevention project in West Bengal. Dr. Welch serves sacrificially and is ready to come alongside other serious about making a difference.”
