Invitation to join PhD study about risk young people and practice
Gavin Turnbull, a former youth and community worker and lecturer in Lancashire, is currently studying a PhD at Durham University. Gavin's area of study relates to how 'risk' affects youth practitioners, their work and young people. This could, for example, be about 'at-risk' young people, risk behaviours, risk assessments, risk taking in practice or other areas relating to 'risk' that are significant to practitioners.
Invitation to Take Part: As part of the study, Gavin is interested to hear about the views and experiences of a range of practitioners across England. Gavin would therefore like to invite interested full-time practitioners who work directly with young people in youth work or other informal settings with young people to take part in the study. This would involve a recorded interview (in a convenient venue) lasting about 1-2 hours (depending on how much you wish to talk about), where you will chat about how 'risk' relates to your work (and even if it does). Interviews will be confidential and your views / comments will be anonymous.
With your consent, Gavin may also get back in touch to explore any themes or issues in more depth at a later date. Participants will, if interested, also have the opportunity to be kept up to date on any emerging themes or findings of the study.
