What is it about?
Human trafficking is a worldwide concern. Understanding best practices for working cross-culturally in a trauma-informed way is essential. This article details my personal experiences providing consultation, training, and care in a multicultural safe house for survivors of human trafficking in Finland.

Why is it important?
As a psychologist working in cross-cultural safe house services, I have first-hand experience in not only consulting for an international team but monitoring the daily struggles of survivors in holistic recovery efforts. Additionally, I provide some necessary components to working with this diverse group of individuals, the multiple ethical concerns related to daily care with people with different languages and religious faith as well as making self-care a priority. Finally, recommendations are made to better prepare providers for entry into this type of work.
