On The Outside — Pathways in and out of Homelessness

By Guy Johnson, Hellene Gronda and Sally Coutts

Homelessness is best understood as a dynamic process, yet researchers and governments have tended to focus on how many people are homeless and who they are. Many questions, critical for resolving homelessness, remain unanswered. Drawing on longitudinal data and a rich body of material, Johnson, Gronda and Coutts take us into the day-to-day lives of homeless people. They highlight the creativity and resilience of the homeless and how stigma shapes the experience of homelessness, breaking down and challenging many myths and stereotypes.
