Conversations that Make a Difference for Children and Young People

I haven’t been able to put this book down! It covers adversity and trauma through a mixture of reflections, discussion points, poems and written conversations‘, that’s one reader’s reaction to a new book by Lisa Cherry who is currently completing a DPhil at the Rees Centre, Department of Education, and asking the research questions: “How do care-experienced adults who have been excluded from school understand those experiences? How do their experiences deepen understandings of belonging?”

Congratulations to Lisa who has been awarded Routledge’s Outstanding Book in HSS & BS&E for her latest book ‘Conversations that Make a Difference for Children and Young People‘, which endeavours to explore and build upon the research underpinning the impact on care-experienced adults.

Lisa comments: ‘This book is essentially a collaboration highlighting outstanding practice in relationship focused approaches with children and young people. I am so proud of what has been achieved.’
