Supporting Young Fathers – examples of promising practice
by Nigel Sherriff (Trust for the Study of Adolescence, 2007)
This is a publication from the Trust for the Study of Adolescence – and it is first-rate. It will be of value to anyone working (or thinking about working) with young parents – fathers and mothers. The key feature is its attention to the practical details that directly interest practitioners. It conveys the voices of the young fathers themselves and of those working with them, and explores how practitioners can most effectively assist the young men in the often complex and difficult issues they have to deal with.
The Trust for the Study of Adolescence (TSA) is a national charity based in Brighton. The TSA has a long history of assessing work with young fathers, and have produced a number of excellent publications in this area
