ACES: Vulnerabilities to Human Trafficking

Dr. Vincent Filetti is the co-developer of the ACEs which is highlighted in the current presentation. This is a rare event, a seminal workshop that Dr. Filetti is graciously providing to participants of SAFE 2018. The talk is unique in its addressing human trafficking and how ACEs impacts the vulnerability of youth and adults to human trafficking. His speaking engagements are very limited at this time, and we are honored to have him give us his time.

    60 Mins
    Original Research

    This presentation exposes the Korean sex market beyond massage parlors. In the past, the U.S. anti-trafficking efforts have heavily focused on combating massage parlors to fight Korean sex trafficking in the U.S. The presentation will illuminate changing trafficking techniques, victim characteristics, and new brothel models used by traffickers in response to changing cultural and policy trends taking place in the U.S. and South Korea. It will also present current challenges faced by the law enforcement and NGOs to fight Korean sex trafficking nationwide. Lastly, it offers recommendations to fight the Korean sex market in the U.S. more effectively.

    Amy E Rouleau - Sex Trafficking and Early Childhood Sexual Abuse; One Survivor’s Story and Restoration

    60 Mins

    This engaging journey will provide a greater understanding of how the foster care system, the human brain, and human trafficking are all connected. Amy’s personal testimony will leave you inspired and hopeful for a future without human trafficking.

    When a child experiences trauma, the developing brain has the capacity to shut down certain areas, to self-protect. As Amy explains the data and her own experience with abuse, severe disassociation, substance abuse, and cognitive issues, deeper systemic issues will unfold. While no child, or adult, is completely immune from the evils of human trafficking, those who have already experienced severe trauma are more likely to fall victim. Children in foster care, runaways, throwaways, and homeless are at a much greater risk of being trafficked than the typical child in America. Preventing human trafficking has proven to be a difficult endeavor, but do not lose hope. Through holistic approaches in mental health, early education, law enforcement, and foster care, intervention and restoration is possible.

    Since 2007 The Samaritan Women has been building and refining its unique Continuum of Care Model for survivors of domestic sex trafficking. Under the direction of Jeanne Allert, this organization has emerged as one of the national leaders in long-term, restorative care. The Samaritan Women operates multiple locations in Maryland serving female victims from 19 different states and remains the only residential program for adult survivors in the state.

    This session takes attendees through TSW's process of creating a human services model where no prior model existed and for a population against which very little is known. Jeanne will share the clinical expertise and approaches to care that TSW has incorporated into its model and where TSW had to be truly innovative.
