Educational Psychology in Practice

pp. 54—61

This article will attempt to examine in what sense the educational psychologist can claim to be a psychologist and whether his present role and training reflect this. A suitable text comes from the Summerfield Report (DES, 1968, p. 58) : “The British Psychological Society discern one main thread which distinguishes the contributions of psychologists from those of other workers in the education services . . . the specialized study of psychological science and its application to education and to other aspects of human development. This we accept and on this we concentrate in considering their functions in the future.”
