It is an insightful and up-to-date examination of this issue, covering topics such as the definition of human trafficking , grooming practices, and risk factors for victimization. It also outlines the critical important of healthcare workers in identifying and assisting victims. Dr Frizzell presents a convincing argument as to why human trafficking is a public health issue. Using a trauma-informed approach, it provides helpful tips and approaches that can be used by providers in real-world scenarios to identify and assist victims."
