Abstract: 

This training tool for parents of teens helps to increase awareness about sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. It describes how teens often become victims of sex trafficking and why some are more susceptible to exploitation. The authors describe how pimps, known as traffickers, lure in their victims through the three T’s of trafficking: target, trick, and traumatize. This guide tells parents how to protect their children from sex trafficking, how to keep them safe on social media, and what red flags to look for that may indicate possible trafficking. The authors provide guidance for parents who suspect their children have been victimized. The training tool includes resources on where to seek help or report suspected trafficking.
