General Description of Population

Safe Response’s program is specifically designed for males who may have experienced different forms of abuse and trauma in their lives – physical, sexual, emotional.  Youth with adverse childhood experiences are often at greater risk to react to their own abuse by engaging in harmful behaviors toward others.  Some youth may have complex responses to their abuse that includes sexual acting out, self-injurious behaviors, impulsive and aggressive behaviors, deficits in self-regulation, and/or obsessive-compulsive symptoms, among others.
