Artz, Sibylle; Nicholson, Diana; Halsall, Elaine; Larke, Sue
This guide is a tool designed to help workers and youth work together as a team. The guide will help them to determine what each young person can or could do well (their capabilities and capacities) and, also, what is needed, that is, if there is anything missing, absent or required in a young persons life. The guide is divided into five sections focusing on Context, Connectedness, Care, Capability, and Change. In each section are found that sections objectives, the assumptions that support these objectives and a series of questions that will assist workers and youth in clarifying the youths needs. This guide is meant to: be simple and easy to use, improve workers and youths understanding of young peoples needs, assist in better planning to meet youths needs, and involve youth directly in the assessment and planning process.
