Childhood and youth have become increasingly important topics across a range of disciplines, professions, and studies, and The Short Guide to Working with Children and Young People is an accessible introduction to the main concepts and policies surrounding them. Surveying the key theoretical perspectives of child and youth studies, it prepares readers with new ways of thinking about working with children and young people. Clear, concise, and accessible, it allows students to make more informed choices about their career pathways.
Kate D'Arcy, University of Bedfordshire
“This book does exactly what it says on the label. Readers are provided with important theories and concepts regarding child development, youth, and adolescence. The authors promote the concept of reflective practice and offer a series of ideas and issues to reflect upon. Each chapter summarises key points raised and provides recommendations for further reading. This book will be an invaluable first text for anyone thinking about working with children and young people.”
