HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS VIDEO:

Cross-over youth are young people with significant trauma histories. Trauma-informed care recognizes that young people involved in child welfare by definition have histories of trauma and neglect. Trauma-informed practice rejects a behavioural approach to intervention and acknowledges the consequences of those approaches with youth dually involved in the child welfare and youth justice systems. A trauma-informed lens encompasses: (1) an understanding of trauma on the development of children and youth; (2) the need for youth to feel safe in order for trauma healing to begin; (3) the role of relationships, which are imperative to establishing safety, and; (4) the responsibility of stakeholders to engage in processes of co-regulation when responding to the needs of cross-over youth.
