From the publisher:

Working with Young Men offers a wealth of positive group activities to engage, motivate and meet the needs of young men.

Designed to help them improve their self-esteem, raise confidence and develop leadership skills, this book is full of fun and imaginative games and activities that explore issues such as anger, peer pressure, risk-taking and emotional health and well-being. This second edition is fully revised and updated to include 22 new activities ranging from creative warm-ups that develop communication skills to visualising anger through painting and exploring positive relationships through quizzes and group work.

This book will be a resource that will be used again and again by anyone working with young men, including youth workers, PSHE teachers, pupil referral unit workers, Youth Offending Teams and voluntary sector youth leaders.
