Book Description:
This book provides a perspective on being with edgy youth that critically examines the consequences of conformity and compliance-based interventions and proposes a focus on being present and staying with edgy youth through their journey toward adulthood and beyond. The book provides an alternative way of thinking about edgy youth that will be especially useful to Social Workers, Teachers, Youth Workers, Mental Health Professionals, and all those other professional helpers who come face to face with young people who seem beyond rescue. The book also challenges all professional helpers to critically evaluate their own biases and assumptions about being involved with edgy youth and to be sensitive as to how interacting with professional helpers might be experienced by the edgy youth.
