British Journal of Psychodrama
This is a challenging and exciting book and I loved it. It grapples with some of the most pressing issues facing both organisations and individuals seeking to work with young people in empowering ways.There is a real richness in the variety of contributions many showing snapshots of young people taking centre stage in their own life dramas. The contributors offer us a variety of experiences in different contexts, including health, education and juvenile youth justice. This book doesn't shy away from the politics of working with young people and is not afraid of discussing some of the contradictory tensions and dynamics that are at play in this work. It manages to be both a valuable resource and also deeply optimistic - an irresistible combination.

This book is a rich source of case studies which catalogues and promotes the use of action methods used in healing of pain and hurt experienced by young people. In perfect mirror image of the principles of such a child centred discipline, the young people hold the centre stage and starring roles, and therapists and the therapeutic process serve as the supporting cast.
