Notes

This paper brings a synthesis of social, psychological and cultural theories, rarely integrated in social work, to critique contemporary professional approaches to young people and risk. Described by one peer reviewer as: 'An important and relevant topic, addressed in a very effective essay. It is lively and timely, and will stimulate response.', it has generated high-level debate, and has become a primary reference point in the field. It has been disseminated at: British Sociological Association Risk Study Group, Liverpool, 2005; ESRC SCARR Conference, Kent, 2005, and incorporated in the ESRC Social Contexts and Responses to Risk Research Network online publication.
