Press Reviews

  • The Psychologist

    There is a rich compendium of techniques and ideas, which are clearly presented and illustrated by detailed case studies. I am particularly pleased to be able to review this book as I have a distinct memory of how formative it was as part of my own professional development as a newly qualified EP. This second edition retains this practical and formative quality and should continue to be valuable resource both for newly qualified and practising EPs.
  • Sue Morris, Director of the Educational Psychology Programme, University of Birmingham, UK

    The first edition of this book been a seminal text, very widely used to inform academic assignments and supervised professional practice in early years, school, family and other community settings. This second edition retains the strong, clearly presented and illustrated theoretical perspectives, outlining approaches which are now widely used in EP practice and which have proved useful in bringing about sustained change. This new edition is a valuable addition to the key reference texts which can be commended with confidence, from both academic and professional perspectives, to educational psychologists and other professionals who work with vulnerable children and young people.
  • Terry Philpot, Young Minds

    The second edition of Educational Psychology Casework: A Practice Guide, by Rick Beaver (Jessica Kingsley Publishers) has proven itself to be a standard text. It is a practical and straightforward guide to working with children, from which those other than psychologists can learn much.
