Om boka

This powerful critique of youth justice based on lived experience, theory and practice looks at the topic through a refreshing new lens, suggesting that some existing ways of dealing with children and young people may do more harm than good. After making readers aware of Risk Relation Paradox, the author shows that positive outcomes cannot be imposed or directed but that they can stem from 'presence, attunement, connection and trust' (PACT). Then priority should be given to buffering the impact of familiar but questionable relationships in a youngster's own 'village' that may have led to toxic stress, complex trauma, criminal or anti-authority attitudes and other adverse childhood experiences. In arguing for change, Andi Brierley brings his extensive experience on both sides of the justice fence as prisoner and professional to bear - and whilst he champions the engagement skills of others who have travelled a similar journey, he also explains how the approach can be used by anyone.
