Make a connection
UNTWIST has been written for every child who has had to separate from their family and negotiate a new start in life.
It is for foster children in new homes, refugees in new countries, displaced or traumatised young people in new circumstances. UNTWIST is targeted at 10 to 17 year olds.
It is a trauma informed care tool for the carers and agencies tasked with helping them: A tool to help connect with young people, support them in making sense of their journey, and discover ways to feel ok again.
Sarah McMurtrie is a teacher and writer who is studying psychology and specialises in supporting traumatised children and adolescents.
