  1. This final video of the 30, explores an idea or an approach...which asks you to make a decision as to how you might start to help a young person engage with some sensitive aspect of themself or their life. The video explores the idea of going directly and straightforwardly to that delicate area...or alternatively, start by exploring a person's external world; that is, what is happening in their life around them; and secondly by exploring their internal world, their thoughts and feelings at this moment in life. This video also includes footage of a conversation with Anna, a wonderful young woman who shows the value, for her, of a straightforward direct approach.

All a bit serious, and all quite important.

  6. Imagine overhearing a conversation about...er...you! What would you hope to hear? And if it was someone you had just met, what sort of impression would you hope you made? And if you were overhearing someone who knows you and likes you, talk about you...what would you hope to hear?
