As professionals in the field of psychology, the work we do is impacted by and at times informs our work within the various settings we exist. How do psychology professionals engage with social justice issues? How are we and our clients affected by cuts to mental health services? What can we offer clients who are faced with prejudice, or unsettlement from their homelands? What is the role of psychology and psychologists in contemporary times?
Why do children in poverty in the UK perform less well in school than their middle class peers? This talk examines the problem as it is understood by British politicians and policymakers: as a result of a lack of discipline and aspiration. Against this a more complex explanation for educational underachievement is offered, which rests on the concept of a set of binds, or barriers, which interrupt learning. These insights reveal children's school lives to be highly challenging, despite their ingenuity and effort in trying to overcome the challenges that they face.
