Working with Young Homeless People by Phil Robinson
Book DescriptionYoung homeless people are ordinary young people trapped in an extraordinary situation. This accessible guide provides information and advice on how to understand the needs of these young people, and how to ensure they are supported effectively. It combines the latest research and practice to establish what works best when helping young homeless people and provides insights into their world through diary excerpts and interviews. Key issues covered include the relationship between drug and alcohol misuse and youth homelessness, current policies on housing and support for homeless youths and strategies for renewing a young person's familial bonds and friendships after an experience of homelessness. This book is an invaluable guide for anyone working with young homeless people, including youth workers, counsellors, social workers, residential care staff, teachers, health visitors and managers in the housing, education, health and social welfare sectors.
