Colin Pritchard's research crosses a number of boundaries, but very much with an ‘outcome’ focus, ranging from recent research, with Richard Williams, regarding former ‘Looked-After-Children’ compared to ‘Excluded-from-School’ and a forth coming report to the British Society of Neurological Surgeons, showing the measured benefits of a psycho-social approach in high-tech neuro-surgery. Richard Williams, after more than 30 years of continuous practice, brought his expertise to bear academically in his book ‘Breaking the Cycle of Educational Alienation’, and argues strongly for a more integrated understanding of the child protection-educational interface, and how those excluded-from-school are virtually excluded from society, giving a further turn to the cycle of disadvantage.
