Ending The Game
Human Trafficking/Sexual Exploitation Intervention Program
Permission 2 Be Inc. is a Certified Facilitator of Ending The Game. Ending The Game (ETG) is designed to educate and empower survivors of commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking by providing a structure and framework to uncover harmful psychological coercion (a.k.a. “The Game”) that victims may have been subjected to during or before their exploitation experience. By revealing a sequence of commonly-used, yet seldom-explained, mind control techniques used by traffickers, sexual abusers, media and other coercive agents, we aim to empower victims to acquire skills and end “The Game.”
