About this product
- DescriptionIn the same tradition as the best-selling Making and Breaking Children's Lives (PCCS Books, 2005) this is an academically thorough collection of socio-cultural and critical reviews of the place of children and children's services in society. Contributions from well-respected practitioners and academics provide perspectives on constructing childhood, parent-hood, sexuality, ADHD, children and austerity, the family court system, parental blame and responsibility, learning disabilities, and poverty. Contributors include Peter Breggin, Rudi Dallos, Pat Dudgeon, Laura Golding, Dan Goodley and Katherine Runswick-Cole.
- Author BiographyCraig Newnes is editor of The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy (formerly Changes), and a commissioning editor and author for our Critical Psychology series. Prior to his retirement he was Director of Psychological Therapies for Shropshire. He has a life time commitment to the NHS and is an outspoken critic of the hypocrisy, self interest, confusion and downright lies which characterise so much of the practise of psychiatry and psychology. He believes that unhappiness is a form of heresy and most of the misery for which people seek help is only amenable to alleviation through changes in their material lives.
