Over the last decade, thousands of domestic sex trafficking victims have been identified and offered services. Though there is little evidence-based research on the mental health treatment of victims of human trafficking, one disturbing trend cannot be ignored: victims oftentimes exhibit strong attachments to their trafficker and/or the lifestyle of commercial sexual exploitation. One resource, a survivor-written coercion-resiliency curriculum, is being utilized in dozens of victim-serving facilities in 22 states with extremely promising results in addressing and minimizing the effects of psychological coercion in trafficking. Participants attending this presentation will learn about this ten-week psychoeducational curriculum as a resource for victim recovery, as well as foundational knowledge concerning coercion in trafficking and its role in recidivism. This presentation is recommended for clinicians, survivor-leaders and all professionals working with victims of commercial sexual exploitation in any capacity.
