Abstract

This journal article describes a study that aimed to identify what aftercare services are available to domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST) survivors through residential treatment centers in the United States. The researchers identified 10 residential treatment centers that met their inclusion criteria for this qualitative study. They interviewed staff from five different residential treatment centers that provide services exclusively to DMST survivors. The participants described the range of services offered to meet the needs of survivors after their trafficking experience. Their responses helped the researchers expand upon an aftercare model developed in 2011 to include education re-entry, family reunification, family reconciliation, and emergency substance use services. This study helps refine the earlier aftercare service delivery model and lays the foundation to develop best practice guidelines for providing aftercare services to DMST survivors.

Abstract

The Arizona School of Social Work Office of Sex Trafficking Intervention Research, in collaboration with The McCain Institute for International Leadership, published this report about their study that uses a systematic search method to determine the incidence of arrests for sex trafficking of a minor in the United States from 2010 to 2015. The researchers collected data through a structured online search that produced a six-year picture of the arrests of the specific charge of sex trafficking of minors. The findings from this report include individual and case details including characteristics of the sex traffickers (i.e., age, gender, race, professions, and gang involvement), details about how they recruited and victimized their minor victims, and information about their case resolution. The researchers developed a web-based information dashboard to visualize the six-year data and to allow for visual comparisons by state and over time. (author abstract modified)
