Publication: When Your Client is a Survivor of Sex Trafficking

Clinical Associate Professor and CEASE Clinic Director Emma Hetherington was interviewed for The Children’s Law Podcast, explaining why she thinks a huge barrier to effectively serving survivors of child sex trafficking is that stakeholders don’t fully understand what trafficking is. Hetherington discusses how children’s circumstances and behaviors need to be examined differently when exploitation and trafficking issues are involved. She discusses tips for attorneys representing survivors, screening tools, the harm reduction approach, and how to build trust with youth.
