George Lyward had a gift for working with disturbed young people, and the therapeutic community he ran earned an international reputation for its success in rehabilitating adolescents who were excluded from school. Valuing and Educating Young People explains Lyward's ideas on education and emotional development, and shows how his methods are relevant to contemporary practice. Valuing and Educating Young People advocates learning through conversation and describes how education can be an enriching process that raises young people's self-esteem if approached with patience and fun. It offers advice on providing discipline and maintaining control without overreacting to misbehaviour, and on how to establish an atmosphere of respect and encouragement. Jeremy Harvey shows how Lyward's creative approaches offer valuable lessons for teachers trying to reach challenging students and for all professionals involved in groupwork with adolescents.

Pagina 9 - ... taught me how different knowing is from being able to make others know. Nay, they taught me the more valuable lesson still, how different knowledge which can be produced to an examiner is from knowledge which knows itself, and understands its own life and growth. There I learnt the great secret of St Augustine's golden key, which, though it be of gold, is useless unless it fits the wards of the lock.
