"Skilfully informed by a blend of youth work and therapeutic professional experience and expertise...this book rises to the task as a solid and practical guide to working with the troubles of adolescence." (Chief Executive, Central London Connexions)
This is an accessible and valuable text for students wishing to work with young people. The book provides and interesting and useful introduction to the issues and difficulties some young people face and the case studies and activities help to support student learning and application.
I have recommended this text for any student wanting a career working with vulnerable young people or looking at working in a youth work/counselling capacity
A useful text, providing students with an introduction to working with young people facing additional difficulty.
A really interesting, easy read. Has some great ideas for both youth work and teaching professionals, especially for myself within a PRU provision.
useuful book for youth work students working with young people with challenges in thier lives.
A really useful book for myself as a tutor of level 1 students who often have external issues in their lives which affect their ability to study. I also use with Health Study students who will be working within the wider community of different social groups
A useful book that supports practitioners to work with challenging young people and to understand behaviour and how to change behaviour
great undergraduate text
A valuable guide to this difficult area of social education practice.
The case studies are particularly good and will prove useful to students who are looking for practical support.
This book contains some useful information for students interested in working with distressed young people. The reflective activities provide a platfom for discussion. A good introduection for students
This is well written and is useful for those students who have a particular interest in the subject or those developing research topics in the area
Some interesting chapters to support our module on interventions with young people
lovely and accessible introduction to this area of work, specifically in relation to the concept that all our interactions with young people are important and meaningful, not just those that are defined as 'counselling'.
Although an interesting book, the content is not central to the module I teach but is useful supplementary reading for students wanting to read more widely
