   schema:description "This volume presents an investigation of how youth workers experience moments of "not-knowing what to do" by identifying five central themes of the experience, and by making recommendations for improved youth work practice and supervision. The author provides a context for the concept of "not-knowing", including a discussion of how the concept was framed. He provides an introduction to phenomenological research, including its theoretical foundations and procedures, presenting brief biographical sketches of 12 youth workers who participated in a phenomenological investigation of the experience of self in moments of "not-knowing what to do". This work presents themes associated with youth workers' experiences of "not-knowing what to do": the paralysis of "stuckness", the loss of control and features of despair, humiliation and the fear of being found out, questions of vocation, and "not-knowing" gives way to "knowing. It connects the theoretical discussion and description of not-knowing to recommendations for practical action; and presents four lessons learned from the research. From these lessons, recommendations are provided for front-line youth workers, supervisors, and the development of the profession as a whole."@en ;
