Creating Change for Vulnerable Teens tells the story of Tish Feilden and Jamie's Farm - a network of therapeutic farms dedicated to transforming the lives of disadvantaged children.
Documenting Tish's experiences of working with truly remarkable teens who have faced huge challenges in their lives, the book describes how the farms help young people to thrive academically, socially and emotionally. She shares the approaches they have pioneered, including the critical importance of trust, of looking behind the behaviour and of really connecting with the desires and hopes of young people.
If you have an interest in supporting vulnerable children or young people, this book provides a wealth of inspiration and ideas you can use, whatever the setting.

This is a book all secondary teachers should read and I wish I'd read it when I was a parent of teenagers too. Tish really understands the need for structure and boundaries teenagers need but also the complexity of this phase of our lives and the need to show empathy and space for communication and forgiveness.

The book I wish I'd read when my two were teenagers! Navigating teenage years isn't always easy but through first hand and personal experience Tish reassures and guides us through some of the challenges and behavioural patterns they may experience. You'll even recognise some of them in yourself! -- Sarah McCurdie, Parent and Jamie's Farm Supporter
