Handbook for working with children and youth : pathways to resilience across cultures and contexts /

by Ungar, Michael.

Publisher: London, U.K. Sage Publications 2005Description: xxxix, 511 p. : ill. ; 27 cm.Other title: Pathways to resilience across cultures and contexts.Summary: "The Handbook for Working With Children and Youth: Pathways to Resilience Across Cultures and Contexts examines lives lived well despite adversity. Calling upon some of the most progressive thinkers in the field, it presents a collection of original writing on the theories, methods of study, and interventions that promote resilience. Unlike other works that have left largely unquestioned their own culture-bound interpretations of the ways children and youth survive and thrive, this volume explores the multiple paths children follow to health and well-being in diverse national and international settings. It demonstrates the connection between social and political health resources and addresses the more immediate concerns of how those who care for children create the physical, emotional, and spiritual environments in which resilience is nurtured." ; "Academics, graduate students, and professionals studying or working in human service fields such as human development and family studies, education, social work, child and youth care work, developmental psychology/applied developmental science, child psychiatry, nursing, and family therapy will benefit from this Handbook. In essence, anyone who works with youth or is interested in the developmental issues related to children and youth in clinical, residential, or community settings will find Ungar's Handbook to be of great value."--BOOK JACKET.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

New narratives of early school leavers /

by Taylor, Janet | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic.10th Australian Institute of Family Studies Conference 9-11 July 2008, Melbourne. 2008Description: 9 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Paper presented by Janet Taylor at the 10th Australian Institute of Family Studies Conference 9-11 July 2008, Melbourne. SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: The first hand stories of early school leavers can illuminate current policy issues for the crucial transition from school to work. The majority of young people in Australia finish Year 12, and those who leave school early are often portrayed as ?at risk? of social exclusion. The Life Chances Study illustrates the diversity of situations and experiences of early school leavers and explores this risk. The Brotherhood of St Laurence?s longitudinal Life Chances Study has followed a group of some 140 young people from diverse backgrounds since their birth in inner Melbourne in 1990. Eight of these young people had left school by the age of 16. They have been interviewed six monthly since then, both in person and by phone, and their stories recorded. A narrative interview approach has been used. In addition longitudinal data is available to deepen the analysis. The findings complement earlier research on voices of early school leavers (Smyth J et al 2000; Hodgson D 2007), but with a focus on post-school experiences. The young people?s individual pathways are diverse and complex and include experiences of trying to return to school, attempting TAFE and other post-school training, of trying to find work and of using employment services and other support agencies. The young people also discuss what would be helpful for service development to assist early school leavers. Analysis of this research is currently underway to highlight policy implications.Availability: Items available for loan: BSL Archives (1).

Parental investment in children : differential pathways of parental education and mental health /

by Yamauchi, Chikako.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian National University 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This paper examines pathways through which parental characteristics might affect children?s cognitive and behavioural outcomes. Using the 2004 LSAC, I show that more educated and mentally healthier parents are likely to have children with better ; outcomes. While educated parents are more frequently engaged in education-oriented activities with their children, mentally healthier parents exhibit more favourable ; parenting practices. To the extent that these results reflect causal relationships, they suggest that parental education and mental health affect children?s outcomes through ; different pathways.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Responsibility /

by Hage, Ghassan (ed.) | Eckersley, Robyn (ed.).

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. Melbourne University Press 2012Description: x, 236 p. : ill.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.Summary: The concept of responsibility permeates social life. While it has many meanings, they often centre around questions of practical and moral accountability, culpability and liability. One can learn a great deal about a social formation by looking at the way the meanings of responsibility are deployed within it, the way they vary from one social space to another, and the way they are often at the centre of a political struggle over how we define and apportion blame. The essays in this book do more than examine such processes. Each in its own way also invites the reader to push existing assumptions about what individual, political, ecological and corporate responsibility entails.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
