On this episode of the Ending Human Trafficking Podcast, GCWJ Director Sandra Morgan and Board Member Dave Stachowiak discuss the efforts by the American Psychological Association around trafficking and focus their discussion on an report put out by the APA entitled, “Report of the Task Force on Trafficking of Women and Girls from their Women’s Programs Office in Washington D.C. “
The APA executive summary does a great job in summarizing the many issues of human trafficking with a specific focus and perspective on psychologists. The report discusses the role of the psychologists and provides great recommendations including the need for additional research by psychologist to know more about this issue. Education and training are also important recommendations made in the report. Listen to the podcast to learn more about the other recommendations offered by the APA in this report and the 10 guiding principles.
Recommendations from the Federal Strategic Action Plan on Services for Victims of Human Trafficking in the United States:
1. Examine your own assumptions and biases towards at-risk groups (labor or sex trafficking victims)
2. Be culturally sensitive
3. There is no one size fits all approach
