Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This textbook assesses existing and emerging practice frameworks in educational psychology and their relation to theory.Covering current frameworks, such as the Monsen et al. Problem-Solving Framework, the Integrated Problem Solving Framework for Practitioners and the Constructionist Model, as well as emerging approaches, such as Systemic Solution Focussed Models and Positive Psychology Frameworks, contributors explore how they support educational psychology. The editors consider how existing and emerging frameworks help address current demands for professional accountability, transparency and effectiveness. They conclude with an exploration of the complex methodology and highly integrated approach required by contemporary educational psychologists.This textbook will be an invaluable resource for all practising educational psychologists, students, trainers, and educators.
