Miscellaneous Information

I was Tutor and latterly Course Leader on the MA in Therapeutic Child Care course at the University of Reading where I was Lecturer in Social Work. I was involved in the playgroup movement, setting up playgroups and a hospital-based family centre for children with disabilities, providing play therapy and leading courses for tutors as well as taking part in research. Books include The Handbook of Play Therapy & Therapeutic Play and, with Adrian Ward, Intuition Is Not Enough: Matching Learning with Practice in Therapeutic Child Care, and Helping Families in Family Centres: Working at Therapeutic Practice. I have also written about observing children, play, and early years practice.
