Human-Sex Trafficking
Victim Centered and Trauma-Informed Approaches

The victim-centered approach seeks to minimize re-traumatization associated with the criminal justice process by providing the support of victim advocates and service providers in powering survivors as engaged participants in the process, and providing survivors an opportunity to play a role in seeing their traffickers brought to justice. In this manner, the victim centered approach plays a critical role in supporting a victims rights, dignity, autonomy, and self-determination, while simultaneously advancing the governments and societies interest in prosecuting traffickers to condemn and deter this reprehensible crime..
