This chapter discusses the findings of a study that explored the lived experience of 12 experienced Australian youth workers and researchers in university-based youth work education. It illustrates how hermeneutic-ontological phenomenology can be useful for youth workers by giving them a way to reflect on and enrich their understanding of caring as an essential aspect of being ethical in the world. 39 references.
