'Barbara Kelly and her colleagues have done a magnificent job. This 2nd edition provides a lucid and critical overview of the history and development of Educational Psychology Practice in the UK. This is a valuable contribution to training and professional development that accurately sets 'Frameworks' in context. Frameworks for Practice in Educational Psychology will appeal to both trainees and qualified psychologists. It provides a touchstone and way-marker for the future and should thus also inform policy makers and commissioners of educational psychology services.'
- Dr Simon Gibbs, Reader in Educational Psychology, University of Newcastle

The contributors provide valuable information to inform conceptual, research, ethical, and legislative foundations important for educational psychologists.

Drawing upon the expertise of scholars and practitioners, Frameworks for Practice in Educational Psychology highlights contemporary conceptual and empirical knowledge to inform current and future educational psychology practice.'
