Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

Abstract

School-based counselling is high on the health and education policy agendas. Every major political party has declared its belief in the importance of school-based counselling to the wellbeing of children and young people, both in the here and now and in the future, in supporting their continuing mental wellbeing and resilience through adulthood, parenthood and into old age. In this unique book, based on her own experience as a school counsellor and her extensive research with children and young people, Kate McArthur explains how school-based counselling works, why it works, what it can offer the individual child, their family, their school and the wider community, and the difference it can make - from the perspectives of the children and young people who have benefitted from it themselves.
