Life Changing Results
Courage Worldwide participated in a five-year longitudinal study with Dr. Vanessa Snyder, PhD, LPC, LMFT, Dean of Clinical Affairs at the Richmont Graduate University, assessing the effects of a trauma model of treatment on survivors of commercial sexual exploitation by measuring sets of complex traumatic symptoms such as depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress symptoms, and spirituality. Over the course of two years, we discovered the adolescent population of those who have been trafficked show the most significant response to treatment at 18 to 24 months for symptoms such as PTSD and anxiety. Depression symptoms reduce significantly at the 6-9 month marker.
