It could happen to you. It happened to the girl next door... When Theresa was 15 she moved to a new school and fell for an older pupil, Daniel. Theresa was thrilled when one afternoon he asked if he could drive her home. But this simple decision would hold her captive as a sex slave for two long years. Daniel was part of a criminal ring that bribed and trafficked Theresa out of her own house, unknown to her parents. Theresa would go to school alongside these boys in the day and be called into service at night. Heart-rending, shocking and totally gripping The Slave Across the Street is the incredible true story of how an ordinary girl was lured into the sinister world of human trafficking – and how she eventually escaped and rebuilt her life.

Joslyn Dann never imagined these things would be happening to her. She always thought that it was someone else's problem or something she couldn't control. Now she was in the midst of it and there really was nothing she could do about it. Would she ever escape this modern day slavery? How could some person enforce so much torture on another human being? All she could do was cry out to God in hope that He would answer. Captured into prostitution, Joslyn Dann has a choice to make. Will she give into the wishes of her captors or will she continue to fight their torture methods? Before her captivity she firmly believed and trusted in the love and power of Jesus Christ, but the trials of her new life threaten to destroy her faith. Will she be able to stand against the repeated attacks of the Devil? Can someone rescue her before the fight is gone?

It is incumbent on the forensic community to take a stand and lead a charge in first learning about and then putting into action a plan to give a voice to the victims, caring for them as our patients and developing a strategy to help end this crime.

These chapters include a description of each condition, culturally based best practices for treatment, special considerations for male, female, and child victims, and expected outcomes. Citing the specialized circumstances of this population, the book discusses how to adapt current treatments to the special needs of these young victims. Additional features include case studies, short bullet points, and easy-to-follow recommendations. The book also discusses human trafficking as a global issue with particular attention to the United States. The guide describes the countrywide resources available for practitioners to learn about sex trafficking in the United States, focusing on Georgia as the only state to offer a comprehensive approach to sex trafficking and a model for the rest of the country. It also addresses health policy implications for practitioners and how to harness the support of law enforcement entities.

Cincinnati 1885. Im Haus Nr. 124 der Bluestone Road am Rande der Stadt treibt ein Spuk sein Unwesen ­ der widerspenstige Geist von Sethes Lieblingstochter, die auf der Flucht aus der Sklaverei achtzehn Jahre zuvor unter mysteriösen Umständen ums Leben kam. Sethe hat den Tod des Babys nie verwunden: Für den Grabstein mit der Inschrift "Menschenkind" hat sie den Steinmetz mit ihrem Körper bezahlt. Eines Tages kommt überraschend Besuch: Paul, ein alter Leidensgenosse von der "Sweet-Home"-Plantage. Er vertreibt den Geist und macht Sethe Hoffnung auf einen neuen Anfang, ein bescheidenes Glück und - vielleicht - ein ganz normales Familienleben. Doch zugleich beschwört seine Ankunft lange verdrängte Erinnerungen an die Sklaverei herauf. "Menschenkind" ist ein Werk von der mythischen Kraft antiker Tragödien und wurzelt doch tief in der Geschichte. Es spricht von ihrer Macht, von dem unerfüllbaren Wunsch, ihre Schrecken vergessen zu machen, und von der Möglichkeit, sich an sie zu erinnern.
