Inclusive Educational Practice in Europe: Psychological Perspectives
Arnold, Christopher, Ed.; Horan, Jacqueline, Ed.
The inclusion of all children in the educational system still poses challenges, and psychologists have long been researching and facilitating effective practice with children who don't adjust readily to school. This book collates the findings and practice of psychologists working in schools and educational settings in 13 European states, and will be essential reading for school psychologists, teachers and school leaders. The authors present enlightening first-hand and up-to-date accounts of the debates, tensions and successes that concern this four-decade-long international movement to keep children in education. Each chapter opens with a table of key facts relating to inclusion in that country, to enable comparison. All are by leading practitioners, who represent their countries in the European Federation of Psychological Associations (EFPA) through the Standing Committee of Psychologists in Education. Following an introduction by Christopher Arnold, this book contains the following chapters: (1) Austria (Luise Hollerer and Elfriede Amtmann); (2) Czech Republic (Bohumíra Lazarová); (3) Denmark (Poul Skaarup Jensen); (4) France (Daniel Mellier and Francine Corman); (5) Germany (Klaus Seifried); (6) Ireland (Jacqueline Horan); (7) Italy (Paola Perucchini and Arianna Bello); (8) Lithuania (Ala Petrulyte); (9) The Netherlands (Margreet Versteeg); (10) Portugal (Sara Bahia); (11) Slovakia (Eva Gajdošová, Veronika Bisaki and Silvia Sodomová); (12) Sweden (Malin Öhman and Elinor Schad); and (13) United Kingdom (Dave Traxson). An index is included.
