dc.description.abstractChildren and youth in British Columbia who interact with the child welfare system are often connected with therapists, counsellors, psychologists, and mental health worker. There is no formal training on how to interact with this specific population when it pertains to their mental health. As a result, many do not receive adequate care. Children in care can be a complicated population to work with due to the complexity of their situation. Their well-being is often exacerbated by their living situation both pre-contact with the system and while in it. In order to provide effective care, counsellors should be aware of the difficulty of navigating the child welfare system, as well as the issues that arise for children who live or have contact with this system. There is no current single theoretical approach to working with this population, however, understanding trauma, child development, and the effects of being institutionalized, as well as approaches that are appropriate for this population is necessary in order to provide proper treatment and care.en_US
