About the Author:

Craig 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.

Review:

I loved this book. I think it is virtually unique in the range of topics covered by the authors that relate to both the social construction of childhood and the real life experiences of children. I thoroughly recommend this to all professionals who work with children and young people. Sami Timimi, author, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, Visiting Professor of Child Psychiatry and Mental Health Improvement at the University of Lincoln, UK; This book does what it says in the title and is a 'must read' for anyone who works with children, indeed for anyone who has ever been a child. It is beautifully written, compassionate, informative, thought provoking, moving and erudite. Some of the images it evokes will haunt you long after you've put the book down. Dr Maggie Robson, Senior Teaching Fellow in Counselling, University of Keele, UK; Thoughtful, informed, provocative and never boring. If your work has anything to do with children, read this book. Anne Cooke, Clinical Director, Doctoral Programme in Clinical Psychology, Canterbury Christ Church University, UK; This is a brilliantly useful, well written and superbly illustrated resource. I'd totally recommend it, even if you don't work with children. It's really interesting and a good book in its own right. Amazon Reviewer; Children in Society is excellent; an extremely fascinating and rewarding read. It is rare to find such a comprehensive collection of writings brought together in one volume. I like the fact that the book is divided into two discrete parts - 'Just Kids?' and 'Just Services?'. Craig Newnes' opening chapter drew me in immediately and made me want to read more. While this collection is essential reading for anyone working with children, it is also a must read for everyone because the content is current, relevant and topical; so many areas are highlighted for action and further reading and research. The contributors offer a rich and wide ranging collection of writings and I look forward to reading the next edition in this series about children. As a child I was forcibly drugged with psychiatric medications and as an adult I endured treatments of Electro Convulsive Therapy. Sections of the book resonated with me in a painful way. Mostly I found the chapters of the right length and set at the right level so that as a reader it was easy to engage with what the authors were saying ... Chapter 9 stands out for me as the best chapter. Generally the collection of contributions is outstanding; very interesting, well written, thought provoking and moving. I learned a lot from my reading and I will recommend this book widely. Judith Haire, author of Don't Mind Me.
