Recognising and Managing Pupils with Mental Health Difficulties: Teachers' Views and Experiences on Working with Educational Psychologists in Schools
Rothi, Despina M.; Leavey, Gerard; Best, Ron
Pastoral Care in Education, v26 n3 p127-142 Sep 2008
The role and future directions of the educational psychology services are being re-examined and there is a drive to build a more integrated system of services for children and young people that incorporates education, health and social care. This qualitative study examines teacher's perspectives on their professional involvement with educational psychology services. The results indicate that while it was clear that educational psychologists are highly valued by teachers, there are a number of issues that teachers believe constrain service provision. We suggest that greater cross-system consultation is needed in order to more closely examine how the roles of professionals working in education, health and social care services impact on each other.
