“This CD-based resource provides young people, and the social workers and?others who work with them, with an attractive and interactive way of thinking?about and addressing behavioural issues. This new title deals with the dilemmas?and issues facing ‘Billy’ when his friends start talking about how they could?break into an off-licence and steal money and drink. The interactive medium?allows young people to make particular choices, to follow through their?consequences, and to reflect what they mean for them, and others.?
It presents an attractive learning situation for young people who are or?might be at risk of engaging in offending behaviour, enabling them to examine?situations in which they could be involved. It covers everything from peer?pressures and friendships to what happens if they’re caught and Billy goes to?court and tells on his friends, or conversely keeps quiet about their?involvement. Although the CD is very easy to use, staff are advised to go?through it with young people in order to provide support, and perhaps ensure?that they take in fully the messages presented.”
