Since it's founding in 1997, the CYC-Net discussion group has been asked thousands of questions. These questions often generate many replies from people in all spheres of the Child and Youth Care profession and contain personal experiences, viewpoints, as well as recommended resources.
Below are some of the threads of discussions on varying Child and Youth Care related topics.
Questions and Responses have been reproduced verbatim.
I am wondering if anyone is aware of any narrative studies having been completed with Child and Youth Care practitioner family support systems? In particular I am looking for partners’ impressions on how individuals in Child and Youth Care change due to the challenges of the job – PTSD, vicarious trauma, burnout and/or compassion fatigue. Are there resources/workshops available to partners of CYCPs who are struggling and need support in their home, outside of traditional counseling?
Thank you and be well.
