This Information Sheet, written by CYCJ’s Research Fellow Nina Vaswani, outlines the range of different losses that young people in custody may experience throughout a difficult and troubled childhood, including loss of a future; loss of relationships; loss of status; and loss of stability, and highlights how this ambiguity can complicate the response to loss and affect young people’s rehabilitation and reintegration.
