Main description:

Increasingly there is a demand for psychological intervention in the lives of young people with complex mental health needs. Often this proves difficult and frustrating as resources are under-funded and over-stretched; those involved with the welfare of young people consistently find this both challenging and restrictive. This is the story of the foundation of, and ethos behind TEJO,an innovative organisation that is working to address these issues in a positive and constructive way by offering Brief Solution-Focused therapy without charge, to young people as and when they require help, before they reach a crisis point. Working Magic With Young People in Turbulent Times gives an insight into the invaluable work of this walk-in therapeutic centre. It looks at the organisational problems of running a voluntary social enterprise dependent on the engagement of volunteer staff and clients. This is not just 'another book about youth problems'. Instead, it is a critical analysis of our modern world, exploring the root causes (cultural, political, social) of the current pressures on young people in today's society and the way in which these are being met.
