The Psychology Department travels to Athens, Greece for the purpose of gaining a deeper understanding of human sex trafficking within this city. While enjoying the beauty of Greece and witnessing unique aspects of the Greek culture, the team will visit with local organizations to learn about their work serving at-risk populations. Participants will engage in discussions regarding family dynamics, cultural norms, economic factors, spiritual considerations, identity, and other complex contributors to the commercial sex trade. Students will be challenged with the dark reality of human sex trafficking and will be encouraged to recognize the importance of self-care for individuals exposed to and working within these environments. The group is hosted by the Greek Bible College, located slightly outside of the city in Pikermi, where students stay in the dormitories and enjoy many delicious meals. Excursions include tours to the Acropolis museum, the Parthenon, Mars Hill, Ancient Corinth, and a variety of beach destinations. *Students attending this trip will purchase their own airfare. Airfare is not included in the price of this trip.
