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.

This book presents a narrative approach to creating a supportive environment for health and human service practitioners who work with vulnerable children and their families—one of the most difficult and complex areas of practice. People working in these environments are routinely exposed to violence and trauma and commonly experience symptoms of traumatic stress as a result. Traditionally, human service and health care service organisations have struggled to support practitioners who experience primary and secondary trauma in either a preventative context or post exposure. Using contemporary trauma theory, this book provides a trauma-informed support and supervision framework for supervisors and managers of practitioners that recognises the uniqueness of the practice field, the diversity of practitioners who undertake the work and the diversity of contexts in which they work. It will be required reading for all human service and health professionals, including social workers, psychologists and nurses as well as teachers, counsellors and youth workers.

After centuries of barely visible incremental development, postgraduate education has experienced twenty years of considerable turbulence as governments recognise its latent power, some responding more quickly than others and each in different ways. This anthology, drawing on research, deep reflection and praxis, illustrates the current situation in a range of geographical environments that result from such interventions, or lack of them, providing readers both with information about neglected contexts, challenges and concerns and with stimulating ideas about how they might be managed more effectively.
