    About the Author

    Tom Billington is Senior Lecturer in Educational and Child Psychology at the University of Sheffield where he is also Course Director for the research Doctorate in Educational Psychology and a member of the inter-disciplinary Centre for the Study of Childhood and Youth. He continues to practise in child and family care proceedings and is a member of British Psychological Society cross-Divisional working parties in child protection and childhood autism.


    I am indebted to all those who, across the social sciences, have provided inspiration through their work and ideas evolved over decades. I would also thank those with whom I have worked whether in education, health, social sciences or the courts, for their own particular models of dedicated practice. The commitment of colleagues at the University of Sheffield to the principles of social justice has provided an essential collegial foundation, whilst the willingness of our doctoral community to tolerate and engage with difficult ideas never fails to restore and reinvigorate.

    My family has once again been sacrificed to such a project – Josie, Matthew, Marianne and Sam – but special thanks are due to Joanne who has worked so hard on the manuscript and who has had to make sense of my often incoherent intentions.

    Finally, but certainly not least, this book is dedicated to the lives of those young people, their parents and the professionals upon whom this work relies.
