Texte du rabat

In today's society, many young people feel marginalized and unable to find their own voice. It is vital therefore that youth workers are able to work with them to tackle this problem in a meaningful way. Drawing on the real experiences and difficulties faced by youth workers, this book will help those who want to work with young people in an empowering way. The concepts of empowerment and participation are explained, explored, and critically analyzed, along with the key notion of resilience. This is backed up by activities and UK case studies which help to bring together the theory and the practice.
