Child and Family Guidance: A Phoenix from the Ashes? A Personal Account
Jones, Philip R.
Educational Psychology in Practice, v19 n4 p317-324 Dec 2003
This paper presents a personal reflection on the history and contribution of child and family guidance within the profession of educational psychology. It argues for a return to a child and family orientation within practice to ensure there is a better focus on children's needs. A recent change in the range of therapeutic options makes it more likely that modern child and family guidance will be both effective, cost-efficient, and less stifled by interprofessional ossification. The future of child and family guidance is considered in terms of the working party on the role of the educational psychologist in England and Wales.
