Youth Work. Combining institutional ethnography and community-based research, Youth Work is a sophisticated examination of the troubling experiences of young people living outside the care of parents or guardians, as well as of the difficulties of the frontline workers who take responsibility for assisting them. Drawing from more than a year of on-site research at an Ontario youth emergency shelter, Naomi Nichols exposes the complicated institutional practices that govern both the lives of young people living in shelters and the workers who try to help them. A troubling account of how a managerial focus on principles like “accountability” and “risk management” has failed to successfully coordinate and deliver services to vulnerable members of society, Youth Work shows how competitive funding processes, institutional mandates, and inter-organizational conflicts complicate the lives of the young people that they are supposed to help. Nichols’s book is essential reading for those involved in education, social services, mental health, and the justice system, as well as anyone with an interest in social justice.

Youth Work And Islam. Youth Work and Islam provides an eclectic focus, reflecting it duel inspirations of its title. It considers how youth work can be informed by Islam but at the same time looks at how practice can be pertinent to young Muslims, their community and relationship with wider society. In this book Sadek Hamid and Brian Belton bring together a range of thinkers and practitioners who exemplify and analyse this situation. This not only produces much more than a straightforward view of informed practice, it also presents a broad and humane understanding of the character and possibilities of youth work over a broad perspective. Centrally, while the work demonstrates how Islam and Muslims have contributed to the development of youth work, it also puts forward ideas and standpoints that demonstrate how Islam can continue to inform practice, add to its humanitarian ethos and even make our work with young people in general more effective. As such, Youth Work and Islam is an essential part of any youth worker’s reading, working within and beyond Muslim contexts. It is also a useful and readable text for social workers, teachers, police officers, clerics, medical professional and anyone wanting a more informed understanding of how faith perspectives can inform and refresh attitudes, approaches and enhance work with individuals, groups and communities.

The Art Of Youth Work. "Young's description of the way in which good youth work can instil the key features of critical thinking that underpin educational attainment and the sense of citizenship is about as good as it gets... an eloquent, poetic and philosophical reassertation of the unique contribution of the youth work purpose." Rapport, on the first edition. Since its publication in 1999, The Art of Youth Work has become a standard text, for youth work practitioners and students, on the reading list for qualifying courses. Since then, things have changed for youth work and the Youth Service. So this valuable resource has been thoroughly revised to examine the implications for youth work purpose, principles and practice in the context of the changing social and political agenda for young people. Questioning whether 'transformed' youth work is still youth work, it reaffirms its commitment to youth work as an exercise in philosophy - not because young people are troubled or troublesome, but because they are people in the process of reconciling reason and passion in ways that make sense to them. You will find here a; clear theory of youth work; framework for making sound judgements about practice and the training of youth workers; reaffirmation of youth work, at its best, as a powerful educative and developmental process.
