The important implications this work has for the teaching profession, for parenting and for society must not be ignored. It demands our attention.'

- Leadership Matters

'Jeremy Harvey has captured the essence of a man who cared; George Lyward cared about his "damaged" boys, their parents, his staff and society. In writing this excellent and timely book in such an accessible way, JH has demonstrated how much he cares too.'

- Leading Initiatives Worldwide Ltd

'Kudos to Jeremy Harvey for bringing Lyward to the United States! This work is essential reading for anyone interested in education of young people.'

- American Psychological Association (APA) Review of Books

'Valuing and Educating Young People' provides some excellent holiday reading for teachers with regard to employing strategies to get the best from every student.'

- Somerset County Gazette

'We are concerned with providing security within which release and re-education can come to those who have pulled down the shutters on themselves or bitten society.'

- George Lyward

George Lyward had a gift for working with disturbed young people, and the therapeutic community he ran earned an international reputation for its success in rehabilitating adolescents who were excluded from school. Valuing and Educating Young People explains Lyward's ideas on education and emotional development, and shows how his methods are relevant to contemporary practice.

Valuing and Educating Young People advocates learning through conversation and describes how education can be an enriching process that raises young people's self-esteem if approached with patience and fun. It offers advice on providing discipline and maintaining control without overreacting to misbehaviour, and on how to establish an atmosphere of respect and encouragement.

Jeremy Harvey shows how Lyward's creative approaches offer valuable lessons for teachers trying to reach challenging students and for all professionals involved in groupwork with adolescents.

Pagina 72 - With spectacles on nose and pouch on side, His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide For his shrunk shank ; and his big manly voice, Turning again toward childish treble, pipes And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all, That ends this strange eventful history, Is second childishness and mere oblivion, Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.
Pagina 72 - And then the whining schoolboy with his satchel and shining morning face, creeping like snail unwillingly to school. And then the lover, sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad made to his mistress

Pagina 72 - Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier, Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard, Jealous in honour, sudden, and quick in quarrel. Seeking the bubble reputation Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice, In fair round belly with good capon lin'd, With eyes severe and beard of formal cut Full of wise saws and modern instances; And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon...

Pagina 72 - All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His Acts being seven ages. At first the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms; Then, the whining schoolboy, with his satchel And shining morning face, creeping like snail Unwillingly to school; and then the lover, Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad Made to his mistress...
Pagina 9 - ... taught me how different knowing is from being able to make others know. Nay, they taught me the more valuable lesson still, how different knowledge which can be produced to an examiner is from knowledge which knows itself, and understands its own life and growth. There I learnt the great secret of St Augustine's golden key, which, though it be of gold, is useless unless it fits the wards of the lock.
