The inclusion of all children in the educational system still poses challenges, and psychologists have long been researching and facilitating effective practice with children who don’t adjust readily to school. This book collates the findings and practice of psychologists working in schools and educational settings in 13 European states, and will be essential reading for school psychologists, teachers and school leaders.

The authors present enlightening first-hand and up-to-date accounts of the debates, tensions and successes that concern this four-decade-long international movement to keep children in education. Each chapter opens with a table of key facts relating to inclusion in that country, to enable comparison. All are by leading practitioners, who represent their countries in the European Federation of Psychological Associations (EFPA) through the Standing Committee of Psychologists in Education.
