What those on the front lines of battling sex trafficking say about ETG
I am convinced that ETG is an essential part of meaningful healing for this population because of the impact I observed in both (community-based and residential) settings.
The women are relating to the material and to my surprise are really being transparent and opening up. Thank you for the training and for developing this program. I already see a change starting in some of them. It’s a precious gift to see.
I want to express my gratitude to all of you working with Ending The Game for such a powerful curriculum. I have so many snippets and moments in time that are prompted by the course materials, but as an example two girls in the group yesterday who have been fairly armored were able to cry for the first time about their experience and receive support and nurture from the group and the facilitators. It is an amazing, challenging and blessed work of healing that is underway and I thank you all for making this happen.
The curriculum is well thought out, blending the influences of psychological theory with down to earth real shared experiences, making it a very powerful and capable tool in reaching even the most at risk girls.
Teaching our clients and watching them realize different concepts and grow is the highlight of my week.
If I was required to complete this program by the courts when I was arrested, I don’t think I would have been trafficked for so many years — it’s quite an eye-opener.
The curriculum/our experience has been amazing! It has been by far the most effective and root-reaching curriculum we have used. I have been really impressed by the growth of the participants in a short period of time.
[ETG] is what really opened my eyes and broke chains for me! It put everything into perspective and just kept it real. Truly life changing.
We have no idea the impact we make when we come as facilitators to listen, learn, and love each week. The course has changed my life.
Ending The Game curriculum was utilized for our Free to Be Me (formerly known as the 180 Diversion Program). The curriculum was extremely well done and was well received by the participants. The detailed information provided by survivor input for the curriculum truly helped the participants understand how they got into the life. Particularly, understanding the psychological effects of coercion and red flags to be aware of in relationships. The homework was a great reinforcement of what they learned. The Facilitator Training provided with the curriculum was by far the best I’ve seen. I would highly recommend this to foster care homes, group homes, and shelters where HT victims are placed. This curriculum helps to begin the healing process.
I’ve taken other trauma-healing type curriculum, and they are nothing compared to this. I especially loved the chapter on how our brains work to protect us. I’m so thrilled to be part of this…it’s emotional, yes, but so, so necessary. I had no idea.
