Dr Michael Whelan

Course Director

and Senior Lecturer in Childhood and Youth Studies

 

Michael's professional background is primarily in youth work where he has gained an international perspective on the development of services for young people through his experience working as a qualified youth worker in the Republic of Ireland, Australia and the UK. His experience in the UK has been primarily within statutory sector youth services; however, he is a strong advocate of the voluntary sector and is currently a trustee with one of the largest nation voluntary sector providers of support to homeless young people. Michael’s research interests focus on children and young people’s experiences of violence, as perpetrators and victims.
