"Educational Psychology explores the role of the educational psychologist, firstly by examining cognitive development, cognitive psychology and individual differences and secondly through the analysis of social development and social psychology. Controversies and dilemmas in research and professional practice are discussed throughout the book. An initial chapter focuses on the development, contemporary nature and context of educational psychology as a profession, outlining especially the requirements for and the nature of professional training. Current debates and challenges are introduced within a diverse range of topics in cognition, learning and instruction, such as, intelligence, language development, dyslexia, maths anxiety, instructional psychology and inclusion. Similarly, topics covering social, emotional and behavioural issues in school - behaviour management and attributions, bullying, autism, school phobia, pupil identity and school ethos - are explored in terms of their roots in psychology theory and research and their high profile within public policy and decision making. The integrated and interactive approach, combined with the comprehensive coverage, make this book the ideal companion for courses in applied educational psychology"--
