Abstract: 

This journal article presents a study that sought to explore the experiences of 15 female survivors of sex trafficking who shared their stories on equalitynow.org. Using phenomenology, the study of consciousness and direct experiences, the researchers analyzed the experiences of female survivors of sexual human trafficking and how they processed those experiences. The analysis resulted in six themes and 10 subthemes that describe the lived experiences of female survivors of sex trafficking. The researchers discuss clinical implications and future research recommendations.
