Special Topics in Trafficking: The Victims Perspective

Special Topics in Trafficking: The Victims Perspective

This module will take a comprehensive look at trafficking from the victims’ perspective and will focus on the lesser recognized victims of trafficking, males and LGBT youth. These populations have specific risk factors that increase their likelihood of victimization and decrease the opportunities for services and prevention. In this module, we will also discuss how advocates can best attempt to understand how a victim’s perspective of their exploitation will impact them during and after leaving “the life.” The speaker will address resiliency of victims during their exploitation and how they can move forward to empowerment. Additional topics include how public perception/stigma of victims impacts how they see themselves and examples of successful recovery and restoration programs.

Speaker: Naeshia McDowell, MPH, Child Advocacy Centers of Georgia
