Joined-Up Practice: Five Areas of Exemplary Practice for Social Workers and Educators to Re-Engage Homeless Youth
Crane, Phil; Livock, Cheryl
Youth Studies Australia, v31 n2 p44-52 Jun 2012
Young people seen as "at risk" are a substantial focus across a wide range of policy and practice fields in national and international contexts. This article addresses two of those fields, youth homelessness and young people failing to obtain a basic education that will give them access to employment and full community participation. By comparing solutions to the problems of youth homelessness and young people educationally at risk, the article distils key meta-characteristics useful for both social workers and educators in mutually supporting some of the most at-risk young people in our communities today. The authors suggest that these can inform a more "joined-up" approach to practice. (Contains 4 vignettes.)
