    Many people have been involved in the production of this book and deserve our appreciation and thanks. They include those who volunteered to take part in the research that informed some of the chapters, and the contributors who gave their valuable time and effort to writing the chapters.

    We are indebted to Peter Daniel Geary and Caroline Wheeler who applied themselves diligently to copy-editing and proofreading.

    We acknowledge the help and support we gave each other as editors in engaging with this project, which had rather more complications than we had bargained for.

    We acknowledge the wealth of knowledge and experience we have gained from the clients and supervisees whom we have worked with.

    Last, but not least, we appreciate the support and patience of our respective partners, who have had to live with us engaged in an endeavour that largely excluded them, and at times probably made us a bit irritating to be with!
