Disturbed sleep patterns, semi-starvation symptoms, loss of hope, and trauma symptomatology are often co-occurring clinical concerns for professionals working with unaccompanied minors. Delivering mental health treatment in such a context can be extremely challenging owing to the complexity of this multiple presentation. The early intervention framework described in this chapter provides an innovative model of clinical work with unaccompanied minors who have experienced, and continue to experience, ongoing traumas. This intervention is distinct in that its focus is on developing and embedding a framework of competencies that can inform practice among different professionals involved. The chapter delineates four main interventions that are tools aimed to promote young people’s resilience and well-being.
