Trauma sensitive practice with children in care

Judith Furnivall, Edwina Grant

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This Insight is intended to summarise the evidence in this challenging area of work and to support practitioners to reflect on their practice in this context. An enhanced understanding of trauma can enable practitioners and managers, from all the agencies working with children in care, to improve their practice with severely distressed children and to reduce the negative impact of trauma not only on children but also on the adults caring for them.
