There is increasing awareness that many children who present behavioral challenges have experienced relational trauma. These youngsters are not well served by traditional interventions in schools, treatment settings, and communities. Adults responsible for these young people often get drawn into conflict cycles and coercive interventions that only make problems worse. In response, many programs serving troubled and troubling children and youth have sought to become "trauma-informed." This article provides an overview of the Life Space Crisis Intervention model as a resource for using crisis as the basis for learning and therapy with traumatized children and youth.
