Thinking critically about safeguarding young people – Dez Holmes

Work with young people facing harm is an ever-evolving area of work, where the stakes are high and where policy and practice are often developed in response to crisis, leading to reactive and defensive approaches. The book I have edited – Safeguarding Young People: Risk, rights, relationships and resilience – tries to take a step back; to create space for reflection to allow a more aspirational and evidence-informed reframing of the issues.
