"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 reassertation of the unique contribution of the youth work purpose." Rapport, on the first edition. 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; reaffirmation of youth work, at its best, as a powerful educative and developmental process.
Presenting an analysis of the ethical dilemmas facing youth workers in their day-to-day practice, this text offers an insight into both the perennial dilemmas of youth work practice, and the challenges faced.
This popular textbook gives students a practical understanding of the broad range of skills they will need during the course of their studies and throughout their youth work career. The Second Edition includes a new chapter on practice placements, and has been updated to be brought in line with the latest policy and professional regulation context.

When searching for someone to help them reflect upon and improve their lives, people tend to be drawn towards those who are compassionate, committed and wise. This book is aimed at those who recognise these qualities in themselves and wish to develop their capacity to engage with and help others. The authors argue for ways of approaching helping and counselling that are rooted in care and commitment, drawing upon the experiences and practice wisdom of youth workers, housing support and hostel workers, the clergy and those working in a religious setting, educators and settlement and community workers. They explore the key characteristics of those who counsel and teach and examine aspects of the helping process, focusing on living life well, knowing and being oneself, relating to others and working to make change possible. This book will be essential reading for students on professional training programmes in youth work, community education, ministry, social care and counselling.
