An essential book if working with children at risk
Covers a broad range of issues of risk. Much more detail needed for my course.
An excellent read. The students will appreciate the simplicty of this book and the practical application of risk management to young people. This is an essential read for my upcoming module; Risk, Resilience and Resitance and will hopefully give those studying the module, the opportunity to widen their knowledge and skills by reading and applying the concepts in this text.
A fantastic and easy read, perfect for my PRU work and for my L3 Youth work students. Has loads of different examples of risky behavioir and how we can help working eith young people.
Really easy reading
This is a really accessible book that covers a broad range of risk-taking behaviour that could be undertaken by young people. In our module, most of the subjects explored in the book are covered. The information and questions in particular are engaging and ideal for level 5 learning. I will be using this book with my students.
This is one of the most influential text books this year on working with young people.
This has been an advised reading text for a while and students in residential community and YOT settings have found it very helpful. It covers a lot of diffcult issues ( which are often ongoing for children into adulthood) in a sensitive and informed way.
A useful tool for professionals working with young people
Have advised students to add this text to their Chrismas lists.
This book has practical thought out strategies to promote a better understanding of practices relevant to young people at risk . This is an area tiuched on in some detail within the syllabus of Early Years and is informative and clear in its approach.
A good read supplementry to original texts.
Recommended reading for Year 2 Foundation Degree students who are exploring SEN/AEN as part of their programme.
good reading assisted with assignment for the module.
A helpful source for practice with children and young people
there is some useful information within this very practical book. the information is quite easy to access for practitioners and students. The book covers a wide range of topics and this means that the information given for any area is very limited. It could havve been more useful to cover a smaller range of topics in more detail.
A text book that deals with the day to day issues that arise for practitioners in child and youth care field
An excellent resource for a variety of professionals working with young people.
good overview is provided around recent isuses relatign to yougn people
A clearly written and interesting book, but not what I thought it would be.
Very good book. Very important contents. Very complete for my aims in my anti-social behavior course.
