Chapter 8 focuses on the psychological effects of exploitation through trafficking and explores how therapy can contribute to the psychological recovery of victims. It describes the approach to psychological work with adult and child victims of trafficking used by the COMPASS team from NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Psychological Trauma Service. It acknowledges the challenges in promoting psychological recovery for victims of trafficking, not least within a stressful and confusing national identification and support framework. The conclusion acknowledges the need for further research into the efficacy of this, and other approaches, when working with victims of trafficking.
