A Home Within Gets the Word Out!

One of our goals at A Home Within is to inform other professionals about the unique needs of foster youth with regard to mental and emotional health. We want every single foster youth to have their needs met, and the first step is ensuring that clinicians, agency staff, and volunteers have the tools they need to help these youth.

To that end, our Executive and various Program Directors offer classes and lectures, and they publish regularly.

We are proud to announce the release of our most recent book: Treating Trauma: Relationship-Based Psychotherapy with Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults. Authored and edited by A Home Within staff and volunteer clinicians who have worked closely with foster youth, Treating Trauma is a fantastic resource for anybody working with traumatized children.

The funding we get from your generous donations goes a long way to helping us provide materials and resources like Treating Trauma to those who need them. In turn, what clinicians can learn about treating foster youth will only improve the services they offer and give these youth a stronger hand up.

Thank you.
