Working With Troubled Teenagers

Shaathi Mentoring Project is the only accredited (Mentoring and Befriending Foundation) that is working with the BAME (Black Asian Minority Ethnic) communities in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. The project has been operating since 2002 and is working with some of the most disengaged and disaffected young people known to society. We have prepared this course for frontline practitioners working with children and young people who may be known to Social Services, Youth Offending Teams, Connexions Services, NHS and voluntary groups.

Many young people have experienced adversity and trauma in childhood. These experiences have a lasting impact on the way young people view the world and the people in it. Many workers are presented with behaviours and reactions, which they find challenging and/or hard to understand. This two-day course aims to explore the impact of these experiences and practical interventions that can help young people to recover. It is suitable for all staff working with young people who have experienced adversity, abuse, trauma, neglect, loss, separation, interrupted or poor family relationships. It is also suitable for those working with asylum seeker/refugee children and young people.
