Is There a Role for Educational Psychologists in Facilitating Managed Moves?
Bagley, Christopher; Hallam, Susan
Educational Psychology in Practice, v33 n3 p323-333 2017
The current research aimed to explore the extent to which school professionals and local authority staff perceived that there was a role for educational psychologists in the processes involved in implementing, monitoring and offering support to young people for whom a managed move was being arranged. The study was conducted in one English local authority where 11 school staff and five local authority staff were interviewed using a thematic analysis methodology. The emerging themes were: lack of role clarity; variability between schools; reactiveness in relation to crisis; capacity; and possibilities for further involvement including transition, preventative work and accurate assessment of needs.
