    Abstract

    This article considers two practice developments in Welsh (UK) youth justice: desistance-informed practice and the trauma recovery model (as applied in an intervention known as enhanced case management). The potential complementarity of these two approaches to working with trauma-experienced young people in the criminal justice system is explored with reference to the theoretical literature and an evaluation of enhanced case management.
