Abstract/Description: This thesis explores how the traumatic experience of human trafficking can have a psychological effect on the second-generation. As there is a lack of research and literature on the transgenerational traumatization of human trafficking, this is a comparative work that examines and compares the characteristics and effects of three other forms of trauma: torture, sexual assault, and the Holocaust. This paper then extrapolates to consider what similar effects human trafficking might have upon the second generation. The literature relied upon come from a number of fields, including psychology, social work, and public policy. This work will first provide a description of trauma, including what constitutes trauma and the typical effects that can be expected from a victim of trauma. This thesis then ultimately provides an analysis of what can be expected from the children of victims of human trafficking, based on the findings of the transgenerational traumatization of torture, sexual assault, and the Holocaust. A proposal for treatment and suggested course of action is also presented.
