Tiffani was sexually abused by her Uncle Nate and his friend Jimmy when she was 14 years old. Tiffani is a sexually exploited youth who has been arrested for prostitution three times in 2 years (Plummer, Makris, Brocksen (Eds.) 2014). During intake, Tiffani stated that she lived with Donald who promised to be her boyfriend, who’s age and current location is unknown, since she was 14- years-old and forced her into prostitution after running away from home, and then sold to another man named John T, who’s age and location is unknown, at age 16 (Plummer, Makris, Brocksen (Eds.) 2014). During intake, bruises and burn marks were observed on Tiffani’s arms and legs,

Current Living Situation Tiffani is current living at a court-mandated program named Teens First, and receiving room and board in a counseling program for adolescent victims of sexual exploitation and human trafficking (Plummer, Makris, Brocksen (Eds.) 2014). Tiffani’s current social support is her counselor and the social workers who are assigned to her case. Birth and Developmental History Tiffani has two biological parents, father Robert Bradley age 38 and mother Shondra age 33 (Plummer, Makris, Brocksen (Eds.) 2014). Tiffani hasn’t had any contact with her biological parents after she ran away at 14-years-old. There are no known developmental issues when Tiffani was born. At the age of 8, Tiffani had to take on the mother role due to both of her parents abusing drugs and not providing the basic needs that Tiffani and her younger sister needed. At the age of 8, Tiffani too on the responsibilities of washing her own clothes and making meals for herself and her sister (Plummer, Makris, Brocksen (Eds.) 2014). There is no other information regarding her developmental milestones. School and Social Relationships There is limited information about Tiffani’s performance in school, but it is known that she did attend school with her younger sister (Plummer, Makris, Brocksen (Eds.) 2014). From what Tiffani explained, she had very limited social contact with peers of her own age, but recalls her little sister being the one she played with (Plummer, Makris, Brocksen (Eds.) 2014). Before the problems associated with her parents, there was a lot of interaction with the family, until the drug abuse with her parents started (Plummer, Makris, Brocksen (Eds.) 2014).
