5 © Georgetown University 2012, Cady, DA & Lulow, EC Introduction and History of the Trauma-informed Method of Engagement (TIME) model TIME Model – 4 Components TIME and Self-efficacy

6 A youth or young adult advocate is a person who has lived experience in one or more child serving systems who use their personal stories as a mechanism to create messages for system change. Youth Advocacy places youth and young adults in a position of vulnerability as they face the thoughts, feelings, emotions, places, people and activities that are potential triggers to their trauma backgrounds.

7 RELATIONSHIP Establishing Trust and Rapport PREPARATION Creating a safe state of readiness and expertise SUPPORT Assuring physical, emotional and professional needs are met REFLECTION Processing thoughts and feelings to build skills and promote healing © Georgetown University 2012, Cady, DA & Lulow, EC

8 Take the trauma into account Avoid triggering trauma reactions and/or traumatizing the individual Adjust the behavior of counselors, other staff and the organization to support the individual’s coping capacity Allow survivors to manage their trauma symptoms successfully so that they are able to access, retain and benefit from the services

9 Safety: Ensure physical and emotional safety and paying attention to discomfort or unease Trustworthiness: Maximize trust and establish clear and appropriate tasks and boundaries Choice: Maximize choices and control over the event Collaboration: Youth voices are elicited and validated, recognizing their strengths, respect for their lived experience and sharing the power Empowerment: Provide opportunities to enhance skills and confidence to further personal and professional development

10 This model is relationally- based and trauma-informed. Supportive adults and/or peer mentors are utilized to minimize the negative impact of re-experiencing trauma for young advocates through effective engagement, preparation and support strategies. © Georgetown University 2012, Cady, DA & Lulow, EC
