Sponsor of the current issue
This issue is sponsored by the Institute of Applied Social Research at the University of Bedfordshire.
As it has turned out, all the contributors in this issue have a conenction with the university. Several were awarded the Professional Doctorate in Sysemic Practice through the university. Five of the contributors teach or supervise on the Professional Doctorate in Sysemic Practice. One author is on her way to that award! So it feels very fitting that the Institute of Applied Social Research which is home to systemic practice research is the sponsor for this issue.
Just to set a bit more context, the Institute of Applied Social Research is home to some of the more radical, groundbreaking research into social justice issues and application to social care policy and practice.
