For those of you working in child and youth care services I want to highlight the international network of Child and Youth Care, CYC-Net. If you sign up to CYC-Net’s discussion groups you will receive posts and comments on a wide range of topics and issues related to working in child and youth care while you can also post comments and questions and start a discussion yourself.
As such, the network is a great place to meet colleagues from other countries online and share your thoughts, questions and experiences. For example, today there is a post from a woman working at the university of Essex calling out for papers that draw on current projects or recently completed work using oral history and related methods, which address the themes of disrupted and traumatic childhoods. Another post enquires about a certain link to a lecture by Henri Maier. Other topics will relate more directly to everyday practice.

For those of you who work in the area of child and youth care services you may find it interesting to learn that assistant professor Kiaras Gharabaghi of the School of Child & Youth Care, Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada has written a book for professionals called “Being With Edgy Youth”.
The book talks about the consequences of conformity and avoiding conflicts in the work with edgy youth and proposes a focus on being present and staying with them through their journey toward adulthood and beyond.
