APA Task Force on Trafficking of Women and Girls
The Board for the Advancement of Psychology in the Public Interest (BAPPI) approved a request from the Committee on Women in Psychology (CWP) to establish an APA Task Force on Trafficking of Women and Girls.
The APA Task Force on Trafficking of Women and Girls reviewed the state of the literature of theory, research, and practice relevant to the trafficking of women and girls, which includes definitions, nature, prevalence, psychological, physical and social effects. Also included are identification, prevention, intervention, and recommendations for future research, training, practice and policy. The Report of the Task Force on Trafficking Women and Girls (PDF, 1MB) includes extensive literature citations that summarizes its findings.
