European comparative report
This report highlights and draws comparisons between the key findings from research carried out in Ireland, Austria, Italy, Malta and Romania regarding the trauma informed practices in second chance education. This includes educators’ awareness and understanding of the impact of trauma on education, their sense of efficacy and challenges faced, as well as the perspectives and experiences of students enrolled in a second chance education programme. A mixed methodology, including both quantitative and qualitative methods, was used. A summary of the report is also available, showing the key-findings of the European research. These highlight the primary role of trauma-informed approaches to promote the re-engagement of vulnerable young people in education and future positive outcomes.
