This paper argues that therapeutic, psycho-social, trauma-informed interventions are the first steps in the journey to preventing and reducing social exclusion, (re) offending and radicalisation. Drawing upon a social exclusion framework and the schism between the Risk-Need-Responsivity and Good Lives Models of rehabilitation, we suggest the efficacy of risk-management initiatives is eroded in the absence of a strengths-based foundation, grounded in the development of self- esteem, confidence, agency and general social and emotional well-being.
