Podcast informs parents on human trafficking, online safety

Laurie Pieters-James

Anti human trafficking organisation The Joseph Movement invites parents and other concerned people to listen to a Trafficking Table Talk Podcast with seasoned forensic criminologist and specialist offender profiler Laurie Pieters-James.

Laurie is also a best-selling author of the book Shattered Lives: The Story of Advocate Barbie (Dirk Prinsloo and Cezanne Visser).

With Tershia de Klerk and Philippa van Coller guiding the table talk discussion, the podcast also explores the possible effects the South African Covid measures had on gender-based violence, the changes in forms of abuse and exploitation, a complete shift in ways of committing crime, and a whole supply of new criminal recruits.

Laurie explains how they saw an increase in child exploitation, child marriage, and child labour. She also touches on a well-known human trafficking case in which she was a case witness, and which is the topic of her book.

This podcast is filled with predators’ tactics, advice for parents, and some statistics and facts such as 100% of photographs of children scantily clothed (posted on social media), hit the dark web in 15 – 20 seconds.

In the next Table Talk with Lawrie on April 27, which you can find on The Joseph Movement website, she will be discussing cyberbullying and stalking.
