Professional relationships with young people

In some people's eyes the development of relationships is a good end in itself, because it is in relationships that we express our humanity. Young people with few good-quality relationships often find that entering into informal relationships with adults who respect, accept, like and really listen to them is a new life experience. This course explores different approaches in developing relationships and working practices that can inform work with young people.

The range of work with young people

This course identifies some features that we might use to describe the various settings where work with young people takes place. This encourages us to identify similarities and differences between settings. It then introduces some theoretical perspectives to help us review these settings and thus understand more about the experience for young people and workers. Finally, it uses these perspectives to analyse examples of different settings, relating the theoretical ideas to the realities of practice.

Working with young people: Roles and responsibilities

In this course we look at roles taken when working with young people. We focus on what those working with young people do, starting with analysis of roles. We show that, in the context of work with young people, the term says something about the kinds of relationships we form with young people and the values we bring. We discuss roles in relation to the 'bigger picture' of organisations and projects that are concerned with young people.
