Will controlling the risks, grow the resilience of young people?

Dr. Fran Gale , A/Prof. Nathalie Bolzan

A change has emerged in how young people are constructed in Australia and possibly most other minority world countries. Young people are seen as vulnerable because of features seen as intrinsic to youth such as; risk-taking behaviour; lack of maturity; and tensions associated with life stage transition. Much resilience literature addresses the 'risks' to which young people are exposed and seeks to provide insights into how young people can individually negotiate dangers. At the level of society the articulation of risk and vulnerability has added legitimacy to the need to intervene in young people's lives in order to protect or care for them through such means as education, programs and policies. Paradoxically this care has also facilitated control over young people.

Recorded: October 2009, Dubrovnik - Cavtat, Croatia.
