This book sets out to explore the ways in which the qualitative methodologies within psychology can support the role of educational psychologists (and others who work with children and young people) to fulfil their role in supporting hearing thevoice of children and young people.
The book has been produced by the Division of Educational and Child Psychology (DECP) which is part of the British Psychological Society. The Division works to support the professional practice of educational psychologists (EPs) through the provision of professional development, guidance and publications.
