Adopts an interdisciplinary approach, emphasizing the importance of learning styles theory for generation programme solutions. It develops specific profiles of youth at risk, and the profiles are set within the framework of learning styles theory. A final section explores a more unified vision of learning as cultural and diverse process in relation to themes that emerge from the research. Application of these are discussed, and options and strategies consistent with the literature are identified.
