Humans are shaped by their personal beliefs, values, and individual philosophies of life. Personal ideologies of humanitarian aid can root a deep desire to provide help and assistance to the vulnerable within our community. This desire often manifests itself specifically in clinicians seeking to provide healing, hope, and restoration in the lives of women and men. (Thullesen, 2019). Human trafficking is a prominent human rights and social justice issue that is embedded within our society. This study focused on clinicians’ experiences and perspectives in working with victims of human trafficking.
The data was collected through interviews of clinicians working directly with victims of trafficking across the United States. The clinicians’ motivation, rewards, challenges, personal impacts, educational needs, self-care, and vicarious trauma were explored.
