    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.

    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.

    This report provides crucial insight into the experiences of these temporary workers in the U.S., the visas most frequently associated with trafficking and exploitation, and the barriers victims face in accessing help. Temporary visa holders often pay large recruitment and travel fees for the opportunity to work in the United States -- and the debts they incur leave them particularly vulnerable to being victimized. Traffickers can control and manipulate these individuals who have few options, lack familiarity with U.S. laws and rights, and face significant language and cultural barriers. The visa rules also frequently restrict their ability to change employers. But there are solutions, including: prohibiting recruitment fees, requiring accurate contracts, modifying data reporting requirements, registration of foreign labor recruiters, and more.

    Abstract:Labor trafficking is a form of modern slavery in which individuals are compelled to perform labor or services against their will by means of force, fraud, or coercion. The National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC) hotline and the Polaris BeFree Textline received 419 reports of likely labor trafficking cases involving traveling sales crews between January 2008 and February 2015, more than any other industry except domestic work. This report analyzes data collected from these hotlines, as well as open source data from legal records, government documents, industry experts, news media, and social media.'

    'The following document outlines a wide variety of both physical and psychological reasons why trafficked persons cannot or will not leave a trafficking situation. The list is inclusive of both sex and labor trafficking operations, as well as foreign-born and U.S. citizen victims. Items on this list are not meant to be interpreted as present in all trafficking cases, neither is this list intended to be exhaustive.'
