Understanding and Communicating with Youth Survivors of Sex Trafficking: Compassionate Communication

Webcasts / Understanding and Communicating with Youth Survivors of Sex Trafficking: Compassionate Communication

Judge John Romero and Toni McKinley discuss how to compassionately communicate with survivors of sex trafficking in the courtroom. Children who have survived sex trafficking have experienced trauma. Communicating compassionately with children who have survived sex trafficking allows court staff to build trust with survivors. “There is so much trust that has been lost in a child’s life who has been trafficked and they need to have that rapport with people in the courtroom so that they are able to communicate and hear what you are saying and how you are trying to help them,” shares Toni McKinley.
