Acknowledgements

I would like to thank my many colleagues who have commented on draft chapters of this book. In particular, thanks to Phil Lee and Edge-Hill University College for granting me the sabbatical time and supportive research environment in which this book could be completed, and Justin Vaughan at Open University Press for his professional and efficient management of the initial proposal and completed manuscript of this book. Thanks to all of the people who have taken part in my research over the past five years or so, and shared their stories with me. Special thanks to CD who granted permission for his full transcript to be used in Chapter 4.

Thanks again to my mum and dad, who, as always, remain the unacknowledged background to everything I do.

I would also like to take this opportunity to pay a very special note of respect to my mum-in-law, Dorothy Ann Crossley. Narrative psychology as envisaged in this book is about how we come to terms with the losses and joys of life and death. Over the past year, with our tragic loss, we have lost our backbone, the central support and meaning holding us all together. It feels like we can only stand by and watch, as we see you slowly, bravely, rebuilding and writing yourself into a new world.

My final thanks of course, as always, are reserved for a very special person my soulmate, Nick Crossley.
