Youth practitioner professional narratives

Changing identities in changing times

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This paper examines youth practitioner professionality responses to neo-liberal policy changes in youth work and the youth support sector in the UK, from New Labour to Conservative led administrations. Using a narrative inquiry approach, six early career practitioners, explore and recount their experiences of moving into the field during changing political times. The narratives reveal differentiated responses to a climate of increasing managerialism and performativity but point to the value of narrative capital as a personalised resource.
