Dr Simon Gibbs, Reader in Educational Psychology, University of Newcastle

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.
