Toolkit: Safety Planning with Foreign National Children and Youth Survivors of Trafficking

Foreign national minors in the United States who have been subjected to a severe form of trafficking in persons are eligible for certain benefits and services under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000, as amended. The Trafficking Victim Assistance Program (TVAP) funds case management services for qualifying minors. This toolkit uses notes, tips, activities, and checklists to provide practical strategies for TVAP providers engaged in safety planning with youth survivors of human trafficking with special consideration given to safety planning with foreign national youth by recognizing the intersectional identities they hold and the physical and emotional risks to their safety that exist due to their various lived experiences of trauma.
