Educational Psychology in Scotland - Building Capacity in Universal Services

The Scottish Division of Educational Psychology (SDEP) and ASPEP annual one day conference will further develop themes that emerged from the 2011 conference, where the focus was on "Future Priorities". SDEP and ASPEP have used the information gathered from last year's conference to generate a shared development plan around 5 key areas.

Details

The overall theme for the 2012 conference reflects the fact that Educational Psychologists in Scotland tackle inequalities in communities and improve life chances for all children and families, work in local authorities, apply psychology and research to inform the best use of targeted and universal resources in local authorities, and aim to ensure that young people achieve their potential and become successful learners and confident individuals. 

There will be three workshop sessions focusing on:

  • key themes of learning, teaching and assessment
  • health, wellbeing and resilience
  • universal psychology

The call for workshops will be made in March 2012 and proposals are welcome from Educational Psychology Services, including those who are working collaboratively with other Psychology Services or partners.
