Purcell, Martin (2016) Love and Professionalism? An engagement with Jools Page on Professional Love in the Early Years. In: BERA: Interrogating the boundaries of childhood studies and youth studies: Themes, debates and controversies in research and practice, 9th March 2016, University of Huddersfield, UK. (Unpublished)

This presentation set out to investigate the extent to which professionals working with young people might implement a 'loving' approach, specifically to their educative work with young people. Drawing from the work of Freire, Hooks and Page, the presentation sought to explore:

* how ‘love' as an element of professional practice with young people can be liberating, healing and catalytic for both young people and practitioners.
* the extent to which using LEGO facilitates my aspirations for the students, especially in addressing ‘wicked’ issues such as this.
