Preventing Radicalisation to Extreme Positions in Children and Young People. What Does the Literature Tell Us and Should Educational Psychology Respond?
Sewell, Alexandra; Hulusi, Halit
Educational Psychology in Practice, v32 n4 p343-354 2016
Over the last five years the radicalisation of children and young people to extreme ideologies is fast developing as a new and important safeguarding issue for Local Authorities. Despite many high profile cases, there has yet to be a response from the educational psychology profession. This article seeks to explore the possible role for educational psychologists (EPs) in this area. This article sets out the findings of a recent literature review in which the authors propose Reactive Approach Motivation theory as a possible way in which EPs might formulate their understanding and response to this issue. Insights derived from the review are then discussed in light of the EP role in this new domain. Particular attention is paid to the PREVENT Agenda and some of the ethical considerations facing EPs seeking to undertake work in this area.
