People being bought and sold is a thing of history in the minds of the general populace. For that reason it can be quite shocking to discover that the slave trade is still very much alive and there are individuals actively exchanging human lives for profit. Human Trafficking is an extremely lucrative industry. People are bought, kidnapped, or tricked into servitude, either for forced labor or the sex industry. The victims of human trafficking suffer a great deal of physical, emotional, mental, and, very often, sexual abuses, the effects of which can continue to be experienced well after they have been liberated from their captors. Because many victims of human trafficking suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), which requires longer periods of treatment than may be offered or is available to them, they do not always have those needs met.The traditional approach to treating PTSD in victims of human trafficking is through Cognitive-Behavior therapy. This particular therapy of all the potential modalities has proven the most effective. Cognitive-Behavior therapy (CBT) was developed by Aaron T. Beck, in the 1960s, by combining the therapeutic approaches of, both, Cognitive therapy, a term coined by Ulric Neisser, and the Behaviorist approaches of Watson and Skinner. Beck felt that the two therapies united would be better suited to help address an individual’s dysfunctional or damaged emotions, behaviors, and responses through goal oriented exercises and tasks.
