Psychological Services in the Schools of Turkey

pp. 51—54

The importance of holistic development of children was recognized by Turkish educators as early as the first decade of the 20th century. Concern for the social and emotional growth of children was evidenced in the pedagogical literature of this period. However, despite this early concern, the recognition of the need for organized psychological services in schools had to wait until the mid-century. The reason for this delay may be the comparatively slow growth of psychology as a science in Turkish universities despite its early and significant beginnings in 1915 at Istanbul University.
