I'm working on a story for public radio in Texas about adults living with complex PTSD as a result of experiencing ACEs. If you are interested in sharing your experience, please email me at: email@example.com and we can set up a time to talk.
I would just like to add to this conversation: the reason why I inject the HT topic into the ACEs topics is simply because 70-90% of all trafficked women were sexually abused (or trafficked) as children. Adult survivors that know they were sexually abused as children were, in fact trafficked as children, and they didn't even know it at the time. I know several HT survivors who never knew they were trafficked as children until they found out what HT is. I really don't like the words "Human Trafficking" because it sounds too bizarre and makes people want to continue to look the other way because they can't relate. A better term, that I use is: illegal exploitation. People can relate to that term much better than to the term HT.
