104: What Should You Know About Crisis, Trauma, Abuse, and Neglect (And When Is It Time to Report It)?


When a teenager discloses a traumatic part of their life it can be difficult to know how to process it and what your responsibility is as a youth worker. Listen in to today’s conversation as a police officer, social worker, counsellor, and youth pastor take time to talk through some of the most difficult parts about journeying with teenagers.
