The focus of governments across Europe and the U.S. in recent years has been on an agenda for social inclusion. This is especially the case for some young people who for various reasons have become excluded from education, training and employment. This vital new guide to providing support in this changing world is ideal for those working with young people, and those who provide support and supervision to youth support workers themselves. This comprehensive resource can be used as a textbook on supervision courses, or as a professional handbook. It will help readers to understand the underlying concepts behind support and supervision and to engage with the concepts, models and techniques that determine effective day-to-day practice. In addition, the book clarifies the benefits and limitations of support and supervision by drawing on the knowledge and experience of those currently involved in youth support. The collection of writers bring a wealth of knowledge and experience from academic and practice-based backgrounds to help practitioners, their managers, the organisations for which they work, and those on a wide range of professional training courses.
