While gangs may lead young people into dangerous situations and breed community division, distrust and fear .

While gangs may lead young people into dangerous situations and breed community division, distrust and fear, the friendship, support, security and sense of belonging they offer are often overlooked by those working with young people involved in gangs. It provides a tried-and-tested training programme for anyone involved in conflict resolution with young people in groups or gangs, and offers effective interventions that work.

This book will be particularly useful for professionals working with young people who are involved in street gangs, and for organisations considering their strategy to manage gangs

This book will be particularly useful for professionals working with young people who are involved in street gangs, and for organisations considering their strategy to manage gangs. This book provides both a set of resources for a prevention or low-intensity intervention course, as well as proving a starting point for further development. It also has a wider achievement in clearly presenting the possibility of broadening gang strategy from suppression to include prevention and intervention. Author: Prison Service Journal.

Concern about gang culture is on the increase, but remains surrounded by myths. While gangs may lead young people into dangerous situations and breed community division, distrust and fear, the friendship, support, security and sense of belonging they offer are often overlooked by those working with young people involved in gangs.

Working with Gangs and Young People demonstrates how young people can be engaged in a creative and challenging process that explores the costs, gains and consequences of the choices they make around their gang membership. It provides a tried-and-tested training programme for anyone involved in conflict resolution with young people in groups or gangs, and offers effective interventions that work.

Based on a five-year action research project developed by Leap Confronting Conflict, this practical, fully photocopiable toolkit gives practitioners the materials, support and inspiration needed to engage young people who are involved in gangs. It presents flexible activities and strategies to run either two-hour or one-day workshops, and will be indispensable to anyone involved in working with this under-supported group.
