Recommended Reading: A Picture Says A Thousand Words

Check out this insightful article on Chab Dai’s BlogA Picture Says A Thousand Words

Key points the author, Becky Owens Bullard, raises:

  • “A human trafficking case where an individual is physically chained or caged is not the norm. In fact, the ‘chains’ that keep a victim tied to a trafficker are often the things that you can’t see – fear, shame, hope and love.”
  • “Abuse is complex, psychologically manipulative and incredibly difficult to end without an accurate understanding of its dynamics.”

Thanks for this article that helps us realize the need to understand the dynamics of power and control that are not always so easy to picture. If you’d like to learn more about those dynamics check out Polaris Project’s Tool Identifying Victims of Human Trafficking or my eBook So You Want to Rescue Child Sex Slaves? What You Need to Know Before You Begin.
