While unique to the individual, generally the experience of trauma can cause lasting adverse effects, limiting the ability to function and achieve mental, physical, social, emotional or spiritual well-being. Trauma-informed practice is an approach to health and care interventions which is grounded in the understanding that trauma exposure can impact a child’s overall wellbeing.

The children you will be working with do at times abscond so it may be a case of you having to take the child outside of the classroom to best meet the child’s individual needs.

This is an ideal role for youth workers, outreach workers and or those who have worked in residential settings.
