|Subject Overview:||This subject begins with an exploration of the concept of 'at risk' as it applies to young people, and the use and purpose of such a categorisation by relevant services and through policy. A life-course approach is used to examine the impact of risk factors and behaviours in earlier years on adolescent health and wellbeing including, for example, grief and loss, trauma, abuse and mental illness. Students will examine contemporary innovative services and intervention approaches to working with young people "at risk", and explore how different agencies and sectors have developed effective approaches to working collaboratively. Key management, supervision, legal and self-care issues will be considered, and how these can be effectively incorporated into professional practice.|
