I write this the day after my eldest son was, for the third time, hospitalised with an allergic reaction. The ï¬rst, when he was just three years old, nearly killed him. So much changed on that day.
Living with allergy, as parents, is so fraught that I can barely hope to imagine what it’s like for him. So I’m pleased to see our collection of articles, starting on p.28, which consider psychological perspectives on growing from child to adult under the shadow of anaphylaxis. How do young people, and their friends and relatives, balance the urge to protect with the need for independence and to lead a normal life?
There’s loads more on offer this month, as we close out a year in which we have sought to bring you 12 packed, diverse and engaging editions (plus more online extras than ever). After several years of building Content, Channels and Community, the Psychologist and Research Digest team is in good shape and looking forward to an increased focus on Structure, Style, Strategy... and our Society.
