In this chapter, the authors introduce the ‘problem’ of youth violence, as well as introducing the youth workers who attempt to redress this problem through youth work. The authors state that they will use case studies in the remainder of the book to investigate, through practical examples, how processes of intervention, prevention and desistance work. In doing this, they will provide an accessible vision for what constitutes a more meaningful youth work response to youth violence. They then go on to outline the structure of the book.
