Contents

My son had an anaphylactic reaction when he was three years old. He was hospitalised for three nights, and this was just the beginning of a round of prick tests, 'nut challenges' and extreme day-to-day vigilance.
It has been my biggest challenge, as a parent and person, and I'm sure it has been no picnic for him either.

In this issue, we look at the challenges facing children and their families in adapting to chronic and life-threatening conditions, and how psychologists work across psychological and physical health services to support them. The emotional labour involved in this kind of work must be phenomenal, and I am filled with admiration for those shouldering that burden for the benefit of children and their families. I was particularly struck by the coping techniques suggested in Jeremy Gauntlett-Gilbert and Hannah Connell's article, and I wonder if practitioners make use of these on themselves.

Elsewhere, as usual I would encourage you not to miss the articles at the back of the publication, including a fascinating 'Looking back' on George Kelly and the Garden of Eden.
