About the Editor(s)

Sue McNab worked as a Systemic Psychotherapist in CAMHS in London before moving to Adult Mental Health services in Oxford Health NHS Trust ten years ago. She has also been attached to the Tavistock Centre and the Institute of Family Therapy as a trainer and supervisor on the Masters courses and currently works on the Advanced Diploma in the Supervision of Family and Systemic Psychotherapy at IFT. During a period of working on adolescent inpatient units, she became interested in mother blaming and shaming discourses and has written on this topic with her colleague and friend Ellie Kavner.

Karen Partridge is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Systemic Psychotherapist currently working at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust and in private practice. Her clinical work has taken place primarily in adult mental health but she has worked across the age range and across services. Her PhD research was an enquiry into organisational change in hospitals, and she completed her systemic training at the KCC Foundation where she worked as a tutor and Co-Director. She teaches and supervises professionals in a wide range of settings and is interested in consultation and training in staff groups and organisations, and in the interface between therapy, community and organisational interventions, action research and social justice.
