Book Description

29 Mar 2009 190326913X 978-1903269138
When children from insecure backgrounds become adolescents, the challenges they experience themselves and present for those around them can get a lot harder to sort out, before the teenager can fully integrate into society. These adolescents can quickly acquire 'bad kid' or 'anti-social' labels. They may form attachments by joining gangs, but in doing so, further alienate themselves from other more constructive options on offer.The contributors to this much needed book have all worked successfully on the front line with teenagers whose ability to make healthy relationships, or to find learning exciting or even possible, has been severely compromised by their past experiences of trauma, neglect and abuse. Each expert practitioner offers practical strategies, underpinned by attachment theory and their own extensive experience, to enable teachers, psychologists, therapists and social workers to reach out to young people in new ways, establishing genuine connection and real possibilities for learning and hope. Contents include: Attachment and adolescence-the key issues - Karl Heinz Brisch. Helping adolescents navigate transitions - Louise Bomber. Using an attachment approach in the classroom - Marie Delaney. Building authentic attachment relationships - Barbara Earl. Principles of attachment and intersubjectivity - Daniel A Hughes. Supporting adolescent refugees - Sue Amey. Reaching teenage gang members - Camila Batmanghelidjh. Helping adolescents make the transition to university - Ann Heyno.

A first rate book full of practical ideas on how to help this very vulnerable group. Should be compulsory reading for all adults working with children in schools.

2.0 out of 5 stars let down 11 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Chapter 5 by Daniel Hughes and chapter 5 by Camila Batmanghelidjh were wonderful the rest a little mundane not at all exciting or innovative, most was 'good'practice that knowledgable teachers and other professionals have been using for years

4.0 out of 5 stars A good purchase 21 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good book, with lots of useful information about attatchment. I do feel that there could have been a little more on some subjects. Still a good buy though, I am happy with mine.
