CYCJ has produced a new resource to help young people access research into trauma, bereavement and loss experiences at HMYOI Polmont.
Key messages from the research study, which was undertaken in November 2016 between CYCJ and the School of Social Work and Social Policy at the University of Strathclyde, have been condensed into an accessible and easy to read format.
The study, funded by Robertson Trust and the Scottish Prison Service (SPS), assessed the impact of a range of developments implemented by HMYOI Polmont, including the Barnardo’s Scotland ‘Here and Now’ pilot service, that worked directly with young men who had experienced trauma, bereavement and loss. Findings were published in ‘Our Lives with Others: An evaluation of trauma, bereavement and loss developments at HMYOI Polmont’.
Nina Vaswani, CYCJ’s Research Lead, said: “At CYCJ we want to ensure that our research reaches a broad range of audiences. Most importantly, we want the young people that this study consulted to feel involved and benefit from the findings, which apply directly to their own lives and experiences. We hope that this resource will help to achieve this.”
This new resource will be made available to young people at HMYOI Polmont and shared via personal officers. You can access it here.
