Psychological First Aid for Youth Experiencing Homelessness

This book is designed to provide a framework and a model for intervention by direct care staff working in drop-in centers, emergency and transitional shelters, and group homes so they can better understand and address the needs of homeless youth who are often impacted by trauma.

Research suggests that most homeless youth have experienced multiple traumatic events. While a large number of youth had traumatic events before they left home, many are re-traumatized once they arrive on the street.
