(2000) Young People as Researchers- Learning Resource PackKirby, P. (1999) Involving Young Researchers - How to Enable Young People to Design and Conduct ResearchInterviewing Strategies with Young People: the ‘Secret Box’, Stimulus Material and Task-based Activities, Samantha Punch, Children & Society, 2002, Vol. 16, 45-56This is a research article with obvious potential for child care practitioners. Punch reports on a Scottish project involving 86 young people aged 13-14 years, of whom 55 were from two mainstream schools and 31 were in residential care. The interest of this work stems from the techniques that the author used in group and individual interviews to obtain their views on a range of problem areas and on possible sources of help. What emerges is not a best method but some practical ideas about how young people can be helped to make their voices heard.
