Overview

The detention of children and young people as a response to delinquent and antisocial behaviour remains a topical and controversial issue.

In this new edition of Working with Young People in Secure Accommodation, Jim Rose provides an historical perspective on the topic of young people in custody and discusses the changes that have taken place in youth justice and the secure estate over recent years.

Rose introduces new material and has updated the original content in order to reflect changes in policy and practice. New areas covered include a consideration of the issues arising for children and families who are detained while issues of immigration and removal are being determined and the detention of children in police custody. Using a framework of ideas and theories to support staff thinking, the central chapters explore in detail the dynamics that emerge when the daily work of staff requires them to engage with vulnerable young people in the intense conditions of a locked environment. The relationships between staff and young people are shown as critical for the achievement of positive outcomes.

Taking a unique look at the issue of detention and its impact on young people, this highly topical book will be invaluable reading for practitioners, academics, policy makers and senior managers as well as students of social work, youth justice and education.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Few people could provide an authoritative account of the changes in policy and practice that have occurred during the last decade concerning the detention of children and young people and place it within a practical guide for staff working within secure settings. Based on his vast personal experience of working with troubled and troublesome children growing up in closed institutions, Jim Rose has achieved that with great skill in this second edition of Working with Young People in Secure Accommodation.' - Fay Deadman, OBE, from the foreword

‘For those working within locked settings, this book will provide an invaluable source from which to draw knowledge, a way of approaching and living with young people and a point of strength and respite when an individual day has been especially difficult. However, this book should also be an essential read for all professionals who at any point in a child’s development are involved in the decision-making process that leads to secure accommodation.’ - Professor Sue Bailey, President, The Royal College of Psychiatrists, from the foreword to the first edition

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
'I welcome this book, written as it is by someone who has practical experience of working with young people in secure accommodation.' - Sir David Ramsbotham, Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Prisons 1995-2001

'Rose has written an eminently readable book on working with young people in secure accommodation. He has covered the many facets of providing care, with clarity and a straightforward style. He shows insight into the developmental processes which mould adolescents cognitively and emotionally, and how skilled and motivated staff can help to make the transition from 'chaos to culture'. He remains 'unashamedly positive' about residential work and this is evident throughout the book.' - Dr Azer Mohammed, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy
