Sharedhope International. The National Report on Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking: Americas Prostituted Children, May, 2009. www.sharedhope.org Trauma-Bonds This means that the victims have a certain dysfunctional attachment that occurs in the presence of danger, shame, or exploitation. There is often seduction, deception, betrayal. There is always some form of danger or risk. Patrick Carnes, The Betrayal Bond: Breaking Free of Exploitive Relationships, (Deerfield Beach, FL: HCI Publisher), pg. 29

Human Trafficking Indicators While not an exhaustive list, these are some key red flags that could alert you to a potential trafficking situation that should be reported: Living with employer Poor living conditions Multiple people in cramped space Inability to speak to individual alone Answers appear to be scripted and rehearsed Employer is holding identity documents Signs of physical abuse

Submissive or fearful Unpaid or paid very little Questions to Ask Assuming you have the opportunity to speak with a potential victim privately and without jeopardizing the victims safety, here are some sample questions to ask to follow up on the red flags you became alert to: Can you leave your job (or friends) if you want to? Can you come and go as you please? Have you been hurt or threatened if you tried to leave? Has your family been threatened?

Do you live with your employer or friend? Where do you sleep and eat? Are you in debt to your employer or friend? Do you have your identification? Who has it? Safe Harbor Laws Aiding Exploited Children Need Better Implementation According to research released in January, the nine states that enacted safe harbor laws by 2012 were found to lack adequate funding for services necessary to aid commercially sexually exploited children (CSEC) Lack of statistics Poor funding limits placements and programs
