Trauma-Informed Practices in the Community with CAHMs

At CYP we took part in a project for the Islington Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service, on Trauma-Informed Practices in the Community (CiTIPs).

The video captures CYP’s real experience of training provided by CAMHs on trauma-informed practice and general involvement in the community project. KJ, our Therapeutic Youth Worker, reflects on how the training, community practice group, and consultations have helped support CYP in being trauma-informed.

Kyle, a Youth Worker at CYP, talks about how the training influenced his practice and helped develop his skills, including answering whether young people have experienced trauma, what he learnt from the training and what stood out. All are illustrated with examples of CYP’s recent work with local young people.

Women’s football,

At 8 pm on the dot, the lads gathered around the tv to watch the semi-finals. ‘England cruised into Sunday’s UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 final with a four-goal win against Sweden’. 

England Women have yet to win a major tournament; There was more hope with each goal England scored. 

We will all be on tenterhooks on Sunday as we watch the final. Good luck to the England women’s team! 

Cooking club:

When we started the cooking club at CYP, it was to accompany the mental and wellbeing programme. It was to equip members of CYP with cooking skills and knowledge. As we come to the end of the cooking club with the support from Eat Club, we can see and taste how well the young people have done over the past six weeks.

Everybody has raving reviews every Thursday after each meal. My personal favourite was the raspberry sorbet in a lemon. But some of the favourites of the Youth club were stuffed roasted potatoes, pancakes and a version of an eggs benedict.
