`As the author says himself the methods and perspectives are not new, but what this book does is to raw all these strands together, thereby bringing both a useful theoretical perspective as well as practical strategies to the day-to-day work of an educational psychologist... Whilst including the above he has structured the book to discuss the essential elements of educational psychology casework practice in some depth, with examples using strategies from his integrated model based on actual practice. The examples are very helpful for the reader. Whilst the book is presented as an integrated whole, there is also much to dip into. The appendix holds some interesting items which can be translated into practice and there is also a section on story telling... This is an important book which should be read by any educational psychologist who is looking for ways in which to enhance their work with children and adults and which is also likely to be of value to others working with schools and families, where the focus is on achieving beneficial change on behalf of young people.'

`The title of this excellent book is in no way misleading. This is a book to revel in if you want to reflect upon and develop your practice as a psychologist. If you imagine from this description that Rick Beaver has compiled a useful practical manual, then you will be overwhelmed by a powerful book contained within a most modest title. Not only does this book emphasize the relevance and importance of the psychology within our practice, but it informs and engages with detailed explanations and practical examples. I would recommend this book to trainees and newly qualified educational psychologists and to all practitioners who wish to critically examine their practice.'

- DECP Newletter

`a useful volume to recommend to trainee educational psychologists.'

Educational Psychology Casework is a training guide and resource for anybody interested in children's psychological development and educational progress. The author uses case studies from his own experience to illustrate methods of interviewing children and interpreting their responses. He examines the ways of improving the relationship between client and worker, developing rapport skills and gaining a child's trust and respect. The text contains training exercises, stories and examples of children's artwork which may be used to gain knowledge of a child's mind, especially young children whose verbal communication may be lacking in sophistication.

The aim of the book is to help the reader identify a child's needs and enable the child to overcome learning or behavioural difficulties.
