More About the Author

I'm a senior lecturer in the Faculty of Health and Social Care at The Open University (UK), where I've contributed to courses on working with children and young people; communication and relationships; and health and social care. I've also undertaken research into men working in childcare; fatherhood and identity; and young men and family relationships.

Before joining the OU, I worked for a number of years in community education projects in Essex, London, Oxfordshire and Milton Keynes.

Product Description


'There is no single or right way to do childhood and youth research, but this useful book provides readers with essential insights into many of the options, shedding light on the various purposes, practicalities, merits and ethical considerations. It is a great starting point for anyone wanting to do research that is respectful of children and young people.' (Melanie Nind, Professor of Education 2014-01-01)

'Written by authors whose backgrounds exemplify the multi-disciplinary nature of Childhood Studies, this book includes excellent examples of research projects which provide a valuable model for anyone interested in research with children and young people.' (Sue Robson, Principal Lecturer and Subject Leader for Early Childhood Studies 2014-01-01)
