Product Overview

Meeting the support needs of young people is a key social and political issue, and an area that needs researched, informed guidance. This book draws on the findings from years of applied research projects carried out by the Trust for the Study of Adolescence (TSA) and provides accessible guidance for professionals working with parents and families, answering questions such as ?How can parents facilitate their child's transition to secondary school?? and ?How can families best communicate about alcohol?? Each chapter focuses on a particular area of parenting young people, from monitoring and supervision to support for foster families, and each highlights the implications of research results for policy and practice. A range of approaches for working with parents and families are presented, and the advantages and drawbacks of common techniques such as residential weekends for group-based parenting programs and parent mentoring are discussed.
