The Trauma They Carried, with Dr. Jordan Greenbaum
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Years ago, few Americans—even in the field of child abuse—knew or understood child sex trafficking. The media portrayed it as a problem “over there” someplace, far from our shores. Now we know that child sex trafficking is both a global problem and a local one, one that affects children and youth who come across our borders, and youth in schools right down the street. 

What makes children vulnerable to trafficking, and those who cross our borders especially vulnerable to it? How do we identify those at risk? How do we address the trauma and pain victims of trafficking have survived and carry with them? And perhaps most critically, now that we do know better, how do we do better on this issue? We talk with Dr. Jordan Greenbaum, director of Global Initiative: Child Health and Well-Being at the International Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
