Youth Development 0 It’s all about YOUth 0 Issues are looked at in terms of 0 Risk/Protective Factors 0 Developmental Assets/Competencies 0 Vulnerabilities 0 Biological and environmental influences on development and wellbeing

The Sociology of Youth 0 Actually … it’s not about you … th 0 It’s about the organisation of our society (our community) 0 It’s about words and groups 0 The winners and the losers 0 How deviance is defined 0 Youth!!!

1800s: G.S. Hall and E. Durkheim 0 The Western Depression 0 Rise in Deviance 0 Rise in suicidality 0 G.S. Hall = Storm and Stress 0 E. Durkheim = Anomie and Social Strain

So … 0 Development theories have a strong whakapapa in western psychological theories 0 This, in turn, is problematic 0 Problems tend to be centred in the individual 0 Some groups are always seen as ‘deviant’

So … 0 Sociological theories are critical analyses of society and inequality 0 They ask about power dynamics 0 They look at class, gender, cultural and religious factors 0 They explore hegemony 0 They ask – why do some groups get labelled and others not

But what about youth work 0 Our history tells us a lot!! 0 We are connected to the whakapapa of the definition of youth 0 We are connected to socialisation ‘agents’ 0 The school 0 The church 0 The scouts 0 Technology and Global Development also play a role YMCA - Wales

Late 1800s/Early 1900s 0 The west went through economic upheaval 0 ‘Hooligans’ 0 GS Hall and the invention of adolescence 0 The development of strain theories 0 Compulsory education 0 The Scouts are born

1950s/1960s 0 Post-war 0 The birth of the suburb 0 The baby-boom 0 Technology and consumerism 0 0 0 0 0 born The invention of the ‘teenager’ The Mazengarb report Erikson and Elkind The Chicago/Birmingham schools The leaving age and youth clubs

1970s/1980s 0 The climax and fall of the 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 ‘modern’ world Oil Crisis Welfare reform The invention of the ‘youth-atrisk’ Longitudinal research Countercultural movements Alternative Education Detached Youth Work Critical literacy Academic writing of indigenous health theories

1990s 0 Neoliberalism and the myth of 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 global youth culture Tomorrow’s Schools Alt Education redefined Informal and formal education Youth work moves from focusing on risk to focusing on ‘civic’ participation YDSA Professionalisation of youth work PYD theories are developed Cross-sectional research Cultural theories Critical theories Exploring the power of the post …

Basically… 0 The development of any theory is in response to a societal question 0 The whakapapa of psychology is problematic 0 There is a need to think beyond PYD theories alone 0 The space that youth development work occupies can allow for so much more than mere socialisation
