Product description


"Young's description of the way in which good youth work can instil the key features of critical thinking that underpin educational attainment and the sense of citizenship is about as good as it gets... an eloquent, poetic and philosophical reassertion of the unique contribution of the youth work purpose." Rapport, on the first edition." --Rapport


Since its publication in 1999, "The Art of Youth Work" has become a standard text for youth work practitioners and students, on the reading list for qualifying courses. Since then, things have changed for youth work and the Youth Service. So, this valuable resource has been thoroughly revised to examine the implications for youth work purpose, principles and practice in the context of the changing social and political agenda for young people. Questioning whether 'transformed' youth work is still youth work, it reaffirms its commitment to youth work as an exercise in philosophy - not because young people are troubled or troublesome, but because they are people in the process of reconciling reason and passion in ways that make sense to them. You will find here a - clear theory of youth work; framework for making sound judgements about practice and the training of youth workers; and, reaffirmation of youth work, at its best, as a powerful educative and developmental process.
