The International Juvenile Justice Observatory is involved as a partner in a 18 months EU project entitled ‘FACT FOR MINORS – Fostering Alternative Care for Troubled Minors’ (2016-2018) which is coordinated by the Coordinamento Nazionale Comunità di Accoglienza (CNCA) - National Coordination of Care Communities (Italy), co-funded by the Justice Programme of the European Union (Grant Agreement JUST/2015/RCHI/AG/9578), with the support of 7 other partners and 4 formal supporters.

The project intends to address children with psychological, psychiatric or personality disorders, hosted by alternative care communities (or socio-educational communities) as a consequence of penal measures.

More specifically, the project aims to reinforce the capacity of alternative care communities in five European Union (EU) countries -Finland, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain- to adequately support and respond to the specific needs of the children with psychiatric disorders under penal measures.

Such aim will be pursued by a two-fold action that will seek to:

• Strengthen the capacity of, and the coordination between, all professionals working with and for children in alternative care to address the needs of children with psychiatric disorders; and

• Boost interagency cooperation, in particular on issues related to the alternative care of minors under penal measures and with psychiatric disorders.

These Terms of Reference concern the creation and follow-up of the project's online course.

• Advanced university degree (MA or PhD) in psychology, psychiatry, criminology or other relevant field;

• At least 5 years relevant work experience, out of which at least 3 years practical experiences working in alternative care for troubled children with psychological, psychiatric or personality disorders.
