New Report on India Sex-Trafficking Available Online

Stolen Lives: Dignity, Forgiveness, Hope, and Future-Mindedness For Victims of Sex Trafficking in India by Victor Joseph, D.Min, edited by Kent R. Hill, Ph.D. is available in its entirety online at (opens as a PDF).

Funded by the John Templeton Foundation, the report focuses on trafficked victims between the ages of 14 and 22 who were sold into brothels. The research analyzes their psychological and emotional stages in a post-brothel setting, and also looks at the impact of forgiveness and future-mindedness on their lives.

With over 700,000 victims trafficked throughout the world each year, and with India serving as a major trafficking hub, psychological research on trafficked victims is an important tool for NGOs, universities, governments, and law enforcement personnel who work to not only tackle this global issue, but also help restore the lives of these traumatized victims.
