This collection of essays explores the knots between poverty, trauma and multiple disadvantage. It suggests frameworks to help service providers, policymakers, researchers and people with lived experience make better sense of these knots and start to untangle them.
These essays allow us to find greater connection between our understandings of the structural, interpersonal and institutional layers. They lay the groundwork for approaches to multiple disadvantage that are more grounded in the reality of people’s lives. And they help us connect those lives to a wider vision of a fair and sustainable society.
