Responding to Clients Who Run AwayCE
Produced by: Ed4Online
Children and adolescents who run away from their homes are among the most vulnerable populations in the world. Although some individuals who engage in runaway behavior do so out of rebellion or defiance of rules, the majority are seeking escape from an abusive or dysfunctional home. This is a vulnerable population as there are limited safe options for children and youth to meet their needs when they have run away. Many runaway youth live on the street or reside with strangers where they are subjected to physical abuse and sexual exploitation. Youth who engage in frequent run away behavior have also been noted to have high rates of mental health problems, including depression and suicidal ideation. Service provision can be more difficult to provide to youth who run away, as they are often unavailable to engage in treatment or other recommended services consistently. Increased service provision that will specifically address the unique challenges for this population can help reduce runaway behaviors and address some of the underlining conditions that contribute to millions of youth who leave their homes and programs.
