Consulting with teachers: An exploratory study into EP practice

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Summary: This study investigates the effectiveness with which educational psychologists (EPs) currently consult with teachers in relation to children who display emotional and behavioural difficulties. The findings illustrate that EPs see themselves as working in a collaborative way alongside teachers, adopting many of the personal qualities and features that are important for effective consultation. However, while EPs appear to be aware of the qualities needed for effective consultation, there is no evidence of a coherent approach, and there seems to be insufficient time available in schools to meet with teachers to establish constructive consultation. It is therefore proposed that educational psychology services (EPSs) develop a consistent service‐wide approach to a specific form of consultation which becomes part of working practice.
