Peter has a background in social work, management, and postgraduate counselling training and research at Central Lancashire, Salford and Manchester universities. Now semi-retired, he continues to provide day workshops, supervision and to work as a student counsellor at MMU. Peter's continuing interest over the last 30 years has been in relation to legal, ethical and professional issues, with a particular interest in the complex issues involved in working with children and young people. His first degree was in sociology, hence his preference for the independent, critical approach epitomised by articles published in Contemporary Psychotherapy.
For Contemporary Psychotherapy:
- The only way is ethics: University Ethics Committees and the future of psychotherapy research
- What is wrong with the BACP Ethical Framework?
