This forum will enable practitioners to reflect critically and creatively on their current professional relationships with young people. Billie Oliver (Senior Lecturer in Community Development and Youth Work Studies) and Barry Percy-Smith (Senior Research Fellow) will set the scene for this forum by reflecting on dilemmas, contradictions and paradoxes arising from their own work. Billie will draw on her experience as the Programme Leader for Connexions Personal Adviser Training at UWE. Barry will reflect on his experience in a wide range of social policy contexts that emphasise the importance of children and youth playing active roles in the planning, delivery and evaluation of services and programmes from which they are meant to benefit. They will invite participants to co-inquire into notions such as ‘participative reflective inquiry’ and ‘interpretative professional practice’, and the value and validity of these for them as professionals working with young people in different circumstances and roles.
