    This report from Polaris and the Sanar Wellness Institute provides an overview of promising therapeutic support that can be used to enhance individual and group intervention for survivors of all forms of human trafficking. Based on the experiences of serving clients in Polaris’s New Jersey office over the past five years, Polaris has found that certain trauma-informed therapeutic supports helped survivors gain resiliency. These interventions include: therapeutic/restorative yoga; expressive arts therapy; and mindfulness and sensory-based practices. Clients have expressed lower levels of stress, increased self-regulation, and strengthened life skills after receiving these therapeutic support interventions. The findings aim to assist social workers, clinicians, mental health counselors, and victims’ service providers in enriching their existing services and increasing trauma-informed supports for survivors of human trafficking.

    Het doel van dit schouwrapport is om allereerst inzicht te krijgen in de kwaliteit van de tijdelijke (opvang)voorzieningen in Nederland. Ook worden de risico's, knelpunten en de 'best-practices' in kaart gebracht. Dit kan zowel de uitvoerders als beleidsmakers ondersteunen bij het nemen van toekomstige besluiten over tijdelijke (opvang)voorzieningen. De inspectie VenJ concludeerd aan het einde van het rapport dat de tijdelijke opvangvoorzieningen zowel aan asielzoekers als aan betrokken medewerkers op dit moment een veilige, leefbare en beheersbare omgeving bieden.

    Individuals that have experienced human trafficking are often left alone to manage the wounds of trauma without any sort of roadmap towards healing. Over the past five years, Polaris New Jersey has worked to identify, and implement, therapeutic support which can supplement and enrich individual psychotherapy, case management sessions, and group interventions. These therapeutic supports have been reported by survivors as important components in fostering resilience, processing trauma, and reconnecting with their bodies after experiencing violence. We hope that other providers and practitioners find these practices helpful as they assist survivors on their unique jour neys towards healing.

    Abstract:'This thesis explores how the traumatic experience of human trafficking can have a psychological effect on the second-generation. As there is a lack of research and literature on the transgenerational traumatization of human trafficking, this is a comparative work that examines and compares the characteristics and effects of three other forms of trauma: torture, sexual assault, and the Holocaust. This paper then extrapolates to consider what similar effects human trafficking might have upon the second generation. The literature relied upon come from a number of fields, including psychology, social work, and public policy. This work will first provide a description of trauma, including what constitutes trauma and the typical effects that can be expected from a victim of trauma. This thesis then ultimately provides an analysis of what can be expected from the children of victims of human trafficking, based on the findings of the transgenerational traumatization of torture, sexual assault, and the Holocaust. A proposal for treatment and suggested course of action is also presented.'

    The 'Trafficking Survivor Care Standards' aim to provide a blueprint for UK-wide service providers offering high quality care to adult survivors of modern slavery, including trafficking. The Standards provide a flexible framework with guiding principles and practical recommendations that support agencies can incorporate into their own existing policies and procedures. The ultimate goal is to promote an integrated, holistic and empowering approach that places the real needs of survivors at the centre of the process of sustained recovery, far beyond the ‘reflection period’. These standards are the result of a collaborative Expert Working Group, formed of front-line practitioners who came together in recognition of a need to develop survivor care standards applicable across the UK. The Expert Group included multiple member organisations.

    Dit rapport beantwoordt de vraag welke verantwoordelijkheden gemeenten hebben bij de opvang en zorg voor slachtoffers van mensenhandel. De ingestelde commissie (burgemeesters & wethouders), in opdracht van de VNG en de Federatie Opvang, adviseert om de verantwoordelijkheid voor slachtoffers van mensenhandel te laten bij de gemeente waar zij worden aangetroffen. Verder pleit de commissie voor generieke opvang, zoveel mogelijk in de eigen regio, al stelt zij ook vast dat in sommige gevallen specialistische vormen van zorg noodzakelijk zijn.

    Abstract:'Child sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) are major public health problems in the United States and throughout the world. Despite large numbers of American and foreign youth affected and a plethora of serious physical and mental health problems associated with CSEC, there is limited information available to pediatricians regarding the nature and scope of human trafficking and how pediatricians and other health care providers may help protect children. Knowledge of risk factors, recruitment practices, possible indicators of CSEC, and common medical and behavioral health problems experienced by victims will help pediatricians recognize potential victims and respond appropriately. As health care providers, educators, and leaders in child advocacy, pediatricians play an essential role in addressing the public health issues faced by child victims of CSEC. Their roles can include working to increase recognition of CSEC, providing direct care and anticipatory guidance related to CSEC, engaging in collaborative efforts with medical and nonmedical colleagues to provide for the complex needs of youth, and educating child-serving professionals and the public.'

    This article will describe a trauma-informed approach to responding to these crimes and discuss practices where such an approach has already been incorporated, highlighting areas where continued, additional integration is necessary. This article will also identify gaps in the application of the approach, specifically in reference to other co-occurring, violence against women and human trafficking crimes, and suggest strategies to more effectively integrate traumainformed investigative and prosecutorial practices.
