The Traps of a Trafficker©
The Traps© train-the-trainer equips attendees to teach youth from all walks of life the tricks, traps, and lures of a recruiter or trafficker. The interactive Traps© program both prevents victims and readies victims to willingly disclose. Participants in the train-the-trainer walk out with the knowledge and tools to engage youth in The Traps© program, obtain a disclosure without causing unintentional additional trauma, de-escalate triggered youth, and hand off the disclosure in an honoring manner.
