Using Trauma Informed Care to Engage Exploited Children and Their Families – Trauma Informed Pathfinder (May 2022)


The Trauma-Informed Pathfinder have shared a webinar with associated materials to showcase the work and methodology in working with children who are exploited and their families in a trauma-informed way.

  • Contextual safeguarding assessment conducted in Hastings, which created the basis for the work strands incorporated in the Pathfinder
  • Exploratory research looking at assessment through trauma informed lenses
  • Practice examples of contextual based, trauma informed approaches to working with parents and children
  • Recommendations for further development of practice
  • The short film, which was shared during the webinar is concerned with the collaboration against exploitation parent groups.
