The first Canadian text of its kind, Right Here, Right Now: Exploring Life Space Interventions for Children, Youth, and Families provides students with the tools they need to apply life-space intervention concepts to real-life situations.

Right Here, Right Now provides a theoretical and practical exploration of life-space intervention as the central concept in working with children, youth, and families in the 21st century. Kiaras Gharabaghi and Carol Stuart argue for an updated concept of life space to reflect changes in social conventions, technology, and our evolving cultural diversity by emphasizing four dimensions of life-space: physical, virtual, mental, and relational.

          Employing the language of social pedagogy, Gharabaghi and Stuart argue that life-space intervention is about promoting the process of learning for young people. Right Here, Right Now ties together theoretical and practical elements into a unified argument about the pedagogic character of life-space intervention.
