A non-sensationalized book that gives readers a trauma-informed way to think about sex trafficking. Forget what you thought you knew about domestic sex trafficking and the best ways to prevent it. The problem is larger in scope and involves more factors than most can imagine. This book lays out what makes young people vulnerable to trafficking, exploring the real root of the problem and the numerous effects of abuse; outlines steps parents and others can take to mitigate those risk factors; and describes ways to help victims find healing. Drawing from her own experience being trafficked plus her insights gained from years of advocacy and anti-trafficking work, the author speaks directly not only of the realities of trafficking that occur in our own communities but also the solutions that we can all be a part of. She talks of everyday things we can do to intervene--not "rescue"--youth in troubled lives and homes. The book also lists hidden signs of trouble and offers parents and professionals practical tools and knowledge to intervene and make a positive difference in young people's lives. Savannah J. Sanders is a leading advocate in the prevention of child sex trafficking. A survivor of hardships, abuse, and trafficking, Savannah is now living a full life as a victim's advocate, wife, and mother of four. She is currently pursuing a master's degree in social work and is working with the Sandra Day O'Connor Institute as Training Coordinator for the SAFE (Safeguarding Adolescents From Exploitation) Action Project. Sanders shares her story and speaks regularly to groups across the United States on anti-trafficking efforts and ways to support victims.

Reviews

"...Her passion for ending sex trafficking and the exploitation of children have earned my respect and admiration. Savannah Sanders has been and will continue to be a powerful voice for policy and social change. I am pleased to be in a position to recommend her new book to you, and know that you will find that it is written in an easy and accessible format making the concepts and call to action clear and possible." --Robert Rhoton, Psy.D.; LPC; D.A.A.E.T.S. Diplomate of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress; Vice President, International Association of Trauma Professionals; Co-editor of the International Journal of Trauma Practice and Research; CEO of Arizona Trauma Institute & Therapy "As a survivor and social worker, Savannah Sanders is a leading expert on the topic of commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC). Her book, Sex Trafficking Prevention, will be a great contribution to the anti-trafficking field. We are lucky to have such access to her insight and expertise. I am so proud to know her both professionally and personally." --Holly Austin Smith, Author, Walking Prey "When we violate the sacred boundaries of childhood by sexualizing, raping or abusing our children we set them on a course vulnerable to the prey of unscrupulous pimps and johns. The FBI estimates that over 100,000 children and young women are trafficked in America today. They range in age from nine to nineteen, with the average being age thirteen. This glimpse into Savannah Sander's heroic story can help raise awareness, break-down barriers to reality and inform parents, police, educators and the legal system regarding how to protect our children from sex trafficking." --Lynne Kenney, PsyD Pediatric Psychologist. Co-author, BLOOM: 50 Things to Say, Think and Do with Anxious, Angry, Over-the-Top Kids "Would you know how to recognize a child that is vulnerable to sex trafficking? Would you know what to do if you did? Sex trafficking of children is not the purview of third world nations nor is it something that happened in the past before technology was available to track predators. It's happening today ... your city ... in your community ... every single day. That is one of the key messages imparted in Sex Trafficking Prevention, a powerful new book by survivor and prevention advocate, Savannah Sanders. By sharing her story Savannah opens our eyes to the world of childhood abuse and trauma that diminishes a child's feelings of self-worth, so much so that saying no and escaping the victimization become impossibilities. But this is not inevitable. We can do something to help at risk children. That is Savannah's other message. And through her book, she teaches us how. " --Stefanie Zucker, child health and safety advocate, Managing Director of Pediatric Safety at pediatricsafety(dot)net "This book is written with the same honesty and strength with which Savannah lives her life. Her ground-breaking book serves to remind us all that sex trafficking is a multi-faceted issue. Savannah bravely shares her experiences to educate readers about the link between sex trafficking, child abuse and domestic violence. Every advocate for child abuse and domestic violence must read this book. And every person who cares about others should read this book, and become a part of the solution through learning and being able to recognize the signs. Savannah's insight and advice throughout this book will no doubt save lives if readers are brave enough to utilize her wisdom and speak out. As a fellow advocate for victims, I feel confident we are making change with a woman like Savannah on our side! --Jessica Nicely -- author, Baba's Daughter, CEO/Founder, Winged Hope Family Advocacy Foundation
