Hear survivors of labor trafficking discuss what traumatic bonding is and what it was like for them in the human trafficking context in which they experienced it. A central part of the discussion will focus on why trauma bonds are such a powerful tool for traffickers and why victims often feel they have no choice but to acquiesce to the demands of those exploiting them. The panel will prominently feature a discussion of the circumstances that make individuals particularly vulnerable to trauma bonding, indicators of traumatic bonding, and what can be done to prevent people from becoming victims.
