About the project – Relationship Building Together

This project will train practitioners working across youth justice, edge of care, youth development and early help services in a psychology-led approach called ‘Enhanced Case Management’.

Staff from across the four services will receive training and support to apply the Trauma Recovery Model framework with the young people they are working with. This involves bringing together practitioners from across multiple services to understand young people’s trauma histories, needs, strengths and protective factors. And from this, draw up a tailored support plan that responds to their needs. As the plan is put into action, practitioners will regularly review the young person’s progress through the stages of the Trauma Recovery Model and adjust their plans accordingly. Through utilising this model, the project aims to meet young people’s needs, improve their wellbeing, and reduce behavioural difficulties, and offending behaviours.
