Description

There is real pressure on our young people in modern society – social media, telephones, internet, friendships, peer groups, parents, school demands – and pressure can come in many forms and affect many areas of their lives. When pressure leads to poor choices and decisions this can have undesirable consequences for young people who have so much to manage and juggle at a time of intense physical and emotional change. This book is about helping young people to make informed choices and decisions.

It is intended for use by those working in a variety of settings including schools, alternative education settings, Learning Support Units, Pupil/Student Referral Units, Isolation Units, Exclusion Rooms, youth clubs, community groups and similar settings.
