The Trauma of Human Trafficking with Allison Franklin - Episode 24

Dr. Graham Taylor is joined by Allison Franklin, the Director of the CARES program at the SAFE Alliance. She is a nationally recognized survivor leader and subject matter expert on sex trafficking. In this episode, Allison shares her own story of survival and an understanding of the narratives of the men and women trapped in this trafficking experience. Together Allison and Graham identify the warning signs and symptoms for early detection and the misconceptions within sex trafficking. Seeking help can be difficult, but programs like the SAFE Alliance are available to intersect the complex needs of victims and offer hope to break the cycle they are in.
