This book provides ways to support and counsel young people struggling to adapt and live with the constant possibility of things breaking down, of normal life being overtaken by chaos. Covering many different types of ‘everyday chaos’ including anxiety, bullying, mental health, trauma, anger and loss, this book is an incredibly useful guide for anyone working with young people at a time when these issues are more prevalent than ever. It was inspired by the author’s daughter’s accidental death aged 27. Written in a warm and down-to-earth tone, the chapters use a variety of case studies to lead through examples on a range of problems young people are facing.

I read Supporting Young People Through Everyday Chaos, this gift of Nick's final book, in a day. It's that kind of book. As ever, the writing is lucid, the stories gripping, the insights into young people's lives full of deep, thoughtful compassion. I felt lucky to read it, lucky to be with Nick through his words, lucky to continue to have his work to draw from. Everyday Chaos is a compelling, profound text by a fabulous writer.
