Example text

Listening as a historic youth work method Listening to young people has strong practical and theoretical roots in the disciplines close to counselling. ‘Counsel’ for young people was mentioned in the Albemarle report. The tradition of youth work had grown up that young people in the early part of their working life were often isolated from a conversation with decent civilised adults who were concerned about them being excellent human beings rather than victims of the market or others’ abuse. Maude Stanley provides a case study of an adult explaining the characteristics of young women’s lives to the wider, adult population.

The heart of the work I was doing was the personal, social and spiritual development of the young people. Quite often this was based on the bible readings set for the day or the week. Characteristically, these readings had been chosen long ago by groups of mainly men, based on ancient patterns of readings usually chosen exclusively by men. Stories focused on men being called by God. Men chose what to do with their lives. Men were eloquent or heroic or faced suffering to be saved. It was all very unsuitable for groups of mainly women.

Which of these bad things concern our society today? Why? • Does Stanley begin to make a moral case for a club for these girls? Listening as a professional skill In the twentieth century listening became a highly developed theme in the caring professions. It is not the purpose of this book to prepare you to be an effective listener but insights into listening have deepened good practice with young people. Maud Stanley listened and learnt about the young people she worked with in a general way.
