Youth Work Ethics by Jonathan Roberts


Youth Work Ethics by Jonathan Roberts

Ethis is a vital issue for youth workers. Youth work projects are often established to encourage an ethical purpose among young people and this book helps youth workers to think about ways of developing ethical reflection in young people. It considers the establishment of organisations, by neighbourhoods and networks, to express an ethical purpose among young people. Youth work professionals will learn how to site their practice within the professional code and work in complex and unpredictable contexts. The book also encourages youth workers to think about the development of ethical reflection by young people.


This is a long awaited, easily accessible text on youth work ethics. (Lecturer, University of Derby.)
