    Acknowledgements

    I would like to thank my family, Gill, Mel, Kate and Liam for their love and unwavering support. This book is about developing supportive environments that include emotional warmth, caring and listening – without such support from my colleagues, family and friends, this book would never have been written. In particular, the support provided by the children's grandparents Norma, Gladys and Peter has been invaluable, as has the support of my brother Mark and sister Jenny.

    The information in this book has been drawn from my career working with children that first started as a sports coach at 12 years of age, and the thinking behind it first emerged whilst doing a PhD (completed in 1996). During that onerous task, I received scant supervision but a great deal of encouragement from fellow PhD students and teammates at Boroughmuir Rugby Club – specifically I would like to thank Anne Kerr, Eddie Donaghy, Gerry Dryburgh, Chris McFarlane, David Cockburn and Bill McNicoll. The book draws from work I have carried out across the UK. I would like to show my appreciation for the managers that commissioned the projects and the workers that gave me guidance throughout the projects. Eddie Still (formerly Lothian region), Bill Badham (at the Children's Society), Christine Mackay (Midlothian), Mike Jones/John Hogan (formerly of the Liverpool Bureau for Children and Young People) and Liam Cairns (at Investing in Children) were particularly inspiring.

    The work has always been influenced by a range of academics and PhD students whom I have been supported by/supported over the years, including Erica Hayfield, Mairian Corker, Nick Watson, Marcus Readley, Sarah Cunningham-Burley, Kay Tisdall, Alan Prout, Malcolm Hill, John Swain, John Pinkerton, Pat Dolan, Tom Shakespear and Colin Barnes to name but a few. I have also received support from my work colleagues on the BA Childhood Practice Programme Team at the University of Edinburgh, including Lorna McNicoll, John Ravenscroft, Lynn McNair, Rowena Arshad and Jackie Bremner, and colleagues I have worked with on research projects, including Anne Hughes, Andy Hancock, Alan Bruce, Claire Whiting and Rana Syed. In particular, I have received support, counselling and extremely wise guidance from my friends: Mary Smith (who has taught me an immense amount about the connections between integrated concepts, structures and relationships), Stephen Farrier, who works tirelessly and Alan Bell, who along with the sadly lost Tom Conlon taught me more about fly fishing and relaxation than they will ever know.

    Finally, to all family, friends and colleagues past and present, I hope this book honours your ideas and memories.
