In some people's eyes, the development of relationships is a good end in itself, as it is in relationships that we express our humanity. Young people with few good-quality relationships in their lives often find that entering into informal relationships with adults who respect, accept, like and really listen to them is a new life experience.
IntroductionThese relationships can offer the young people new perspectives on approaching, developing, and managing quality relationships of their own. This course, Professional relationships with young people, explores different approaches in developing relationships and working practices that can inform work with young people.
