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. 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.
This course looks at the identified risk factors for youth who runaway as well as reasons cited for running away. Also, this course will also look at the risks associated with running away prior to exploring suggested services and interventions that are recommended when working with youth who frequently engage in runaway behaviors.
