Sex Trafficking Prevention
A Trauma-Informed Approach for Parents and Professionals
by Savannah Sanders

Overview


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 book lays out what makes young people vulnerable to trafficking; explores the real root of the problem; the numerous effects of abuse; outlines steps parents and others can take to mitigate those risk factors; and 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.

"The book use my own personal story as a case study, but also my experience and theories as a social worker to talk about child abuse and how it leads to human trafficking. For example, I talk about the first time i told my parents; right, wrong and I break it down into what could have been done differently, and what I do differently with my own children to prevent sexual abuse from happening to them. It's written in a way that is not triggering for survivors and is something I feel comfortable having teenagers read as well." —Savannah Sanders
