What causes neglect?
Young people suffering from traumatic experiences, addiction or psychological problems often blame themselves for what they have experienced. Sometimes they bring themselves down and think they 'deserve' severe events. They do not do this consciously, but they believe in their own truth. They allow the wrong feelings and block out the right ones. This also applies to physical neglect. Sometimes the young person is no longer able to take good care of himself, he or she eats badly or not at all, no longer exercises or goes outside, there is poor hygienic care and not enough rest or sleep. The addiction or depression then has them in its grip. They often consider themselves worthless and find themselves in a downward spiral, from which they themselves can no longer escape.
Treatment of neglect
If a teenager or young adult starts to show structural forms of behavioural problems and this will therefore take on destructive forms, there is something going on below the surface. This situation requires adequate and targeted interpretation, coaching and guidance. The Yes We Can Youth Clinics team can map these behavioural problems for and with the young person himself, and then together look for ways and possibilities with which he or she can leave his or her destructive life behind forever and start working on a wonderful, bright future. Yes We Can Youth Clinics strives to reduce any medication that the teenagers or young adults already receive to zero or as little as possible during the treatment.
