We all have a fundamental need to be in loving and caring relationships. When relationships are emotionally attuned, consistent, and predictable it leads us to feeling safe and secure. 

 

In the case of children and youth who present with a history of developmental trauma, early relational experiences may have led them to dismiss the importance of relationships, or worse yet, fear them. Drawing from research in the fields of attachment, trauma, child development, and neuroscience we now know that when a young person's relational needs have gone unmet, it places them at increased risk for emotional, behavioural, relational, educational and legal problems.  

 

In work with traumatized children and youth within and across service sectors, practitioners can find themselves feeling confused and stumped, often left wondering, "What can I do to be the difference that makes a difference?"

Rupert Consulting is available to support and guide agencies within and across children's mental health, child welfare, youth justice, education and health care in customizing relationship based, emotionally focused interventions designed to meet the needs of traumatized children and youth.
