Helen Thomas – Social Worker

I have practised as a Social Worker for over 30 years, and have always tried to work resiliently. My areas of expertise are child mental health, child abuse, neglect and fostering. Currently I work in a front-line child protection team. It was a privilege to contribute to the original Resilient Therapy book with Angie Hart, and to cross over our disciplines i.e., Angie from academia to psychotherapy/counselling, and me to more research-based work, as well as working therapeutically with her children (which is where we met 15 years ago).
