`This book has it all, and is a must have for all practitioners and trainees working therapeutically with children and young people' - Phil Goss, Senior Lecturer in Counselling and Psychotherapy, UCLAN
Maggie Robson is a senior lecturer at Keele University where she is responsible for the professional counsellor training programmes to Master's level. She is also a qualified play therapist and has a special interest in working with, and researching, children's bereavement. She has taught play therapy programmes in the UK, Kenya and the US and trained the first play therapy supervisors in Kenya. In her free time she is a bit of a water baby and enjoys sailing, canoeing and swimming. She also loves walking and bike riding and the occasional glass of wine! Ann Beynon has worked as a teacher, counsellor, trainer and Service manager for the last 40 years. She is convinced of the eclectic role of the counsellor in the development of effective learning relationships in educational and community settings. This conviction led her to focus on ways of developing integrated time for reflection, for teachers. To this end, she researched the application of a non-management therapeutic model of supervision within the educational context. Based on positive findings from this research, she has now established a Service which provides regular Structured Time for Reflection, for head teachers and their staff.
