Sex Trafficking Prevention
Sex Trafficking Prevention
A Trauma-Informed Approach for Parents and Professionals
Forget what you thought you knew about sex trafficking and the best ways to prevent it. The problem is larger in scope and involves more factors than most can imagine. This non-sensationalized book:
lays out what makes young people vulnerable to trafficking
explores the real root of the problem and the numerous effects of abuse
outlines steps parents and others can take to mitigate those risk factors
describes ways to help victims find healing.
Drawing from her own experience being trafficked plus her insights gained from years of advocacy and anti-trafficking work, the author speaks directly not only of the realities of trafficking that occurs in our own communities but also the solutions that we can all be a part of. She talks of everyday things we can do to intervene—not “rescue”—youth in troubled lives and homes. The book also lists hidden signs of trouble and offers parents and professionals practical tools and knowledge to intervene and make a positive difference in young people’s lives.
