Why Author Dr. Michelle Stevens Tells Reported Survivor Of Sex Trafficking ‘You Have To Make A Decision Not To Give In To The Despair’

“When I hear stories about other sex trafficking survivors, I know how hard it’s going to be to adjust to normal life: It’s not your fault. You have to believe that it’s possible to overcome it.” Those are the words of Dr. Michelle Stevens, psychologist, sex trafficking survivor, and author of the new book Scared Selfless: My Journey From Abuse and Madness to Surviving and Thriving.

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?

On Tuesday’s Dr. Phil, Michelle shares her story of abuse; at 8 years old she claims, the man her mother was dating raped, tortured and forced her into a sex trafficking scheme that lasted nearly six years.

“I was prostituted to men, I was forced to do every imaginable sexual act, and tortured in all types of ways,” claims Michelle. “The abuse was so horrible that I really lost all hope and began to think that the only way out was suicide.”

When Michelle sits down with Dr. Phil to speak with Kendall, who also claims to have survived sex trafficking, she tells her, “You have to make a decision not to give in to the despair.”

Dr. Michelle Stevens’ book Scared Selfless: My Journey from Abuse and Madness to Surviving and Thriving, is available March 21.

Why A Reported Sex Trafficking Survivor Says She Was Scared To Meet Dr. Phil

Reported Human trafficking survivor, Kendall, says she was scared to meet Dr. Phil.

The young woman who claims she was forced to have sex with rich, prominent people since she was a small child explains her apprehension. “You’re a rich white guy, and that scared me. I thought that you maybe know him,” she says, referring to the man who runs the international sex trafficking organization she claims she was a part of for most of her life. “Also – you don’t seem to like it when people lie, and I feel like all of these things are lies.”

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Terrible lies?

Clarifying her comments, Kendall claims the man she says “owns” her made her learn the difference between “the truth – and the lie.” She says, according to her captor, the “truth” was “He loves me. He was the only one who would be a father to me. He’s always done what’s best for me and taken care of me.”

When Dr. Phil points out the abuse Kendall has described suffering during her ordeal is reality, she responds, “The reality is what’s happened. The truth is – none of that was bad.”

Why does Kendall say she’d tell other people in her position not to leave the world of human trafficking? Is there hope for her to overcome the trauma she reports enduring as a life-long sex slave?

Law Enforcement Expert Reveals Why Sex Trafficking Runs Rampant At Sporting And Other Large Events

Retired LAPD Lieutenant, André Dawson helps train law enforcement to identify and respond to the victims of sex trafficking. Dawson, who once supervised the Los Angeles Metropolitan Human Trafficking Task Force and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Innocence Lost Task Force, claims any sporting event or other large event that attracts people with money is somewhere sex trafficking can be found.

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Accused of something terrible?

“This crime is an opportunity to chase money – wherever there’s going to be money – you’ll find a trafficker or pimp will bring a victim to that event to be exploited,” he says.

And, claims Dawson, there are no limits to how much or how long a victim might be subjected to the abuses of human trafficking, “As long as there’s an opportunity to make money that person is going to work.”

Why does Lt. Dawson say sex trafficking is so lucrative and its perpetrators so difficult to prosecute? And why does Kendall – a woman who claims she escaped an international sex trafficking ring – say she has a hard time trusting authorities? Tune in to Tuesday’s Dr. Phil.

How A 22-Year-Old Who Says He Was Sexually Abused Can Get His Life Back On Track

Matthew says he was sexually abused by a neighbor while he was growing up. He says that his mother and grandma, who raised him, missed the signs and have not helped him to overcome his past.

However, Matthew’s mother and grandmother say they don’t believe the 22-year-old was abused. They claim that Kaden has “brainwashed” Matthew into believing he was abused and is using him for money – an accusation she denies.

After speaking with the family, Dr. Phil offers Matthew advice on moving forward.

“I think you’re kind of struggling, and I think mentally and emotionally, you’re a little bit confused about what has happened, what is happening and what should happen,” he tells Matthew. “[Kaden] may have the best intentions in the world, but so far as a therapist or a life coach, she is blatantly incompetent.”
