Working with Distressed Young People
Community and Youth Work
It shows how distress and disturbance is created in young people, causing their behaviour to become difficult and problematic not only to adults but also to themselves and to wider society. Using the latest evidence-based theories, the reader will learn how to detect and diagnose problems and work out strategies for helping young people in distress.
This is an accessible and valuable text for students wishing to work with young people. The book provides and interesting and useful introduction to the issues and difficulties some young people face and the case studies and activities help to support student learning and application.
I have recommended this text for any student wanting a career working with vulnerable young people or looking at working in a youth work/counselling capacity
A useful text, providing students with an introduction to working with young people facing additional difficulty.
A really interesting, easy read. Has some great ideas for both youth work and teaching professionals, especially for myself within a PRU provision.

A really useful book for myself as a tutor of level 1 students who often have external issues in their lives which affect their ability to study. I also use with Health Study students who will be working within the wider community of different social groups
A useful book that supports practitioners to work with challenging young people and to understand behaviour and how to change behaviour
