Written by and for educational psychologists, this valuable text includes reflections and practical support that will equip professionals to confidently handle the challenges inherent to leadership in the field for decades to come. The book:
* Meets a need to support new and existing educational psychologists (EPs) in understanding a range of leadership models
* Provides useful frameworks to apply to the Local Authority contexts where leaders are working
* Offers chapters that can be read independently as stand-alone topics or in sequential order
* Is derived from decades of courses for leaders of educational psychology

Written by experienced educational psychologists (EPs) for other EPs in leadership positions and those aspiring to become leaders, this unique and practical book addresses a number of themes including the debate over the nature of leadership and the growing concern for equity and ethics in practice. It emphasises the importance of building and maintaining relationships at all levels, especially during challenging times.

Leadership for Educational Psychologists: Principles & Practicalities offers chapters covering such topics as: managing educational psychology services (EPSs); past and present leadership frameworks; ethical leadership; change management; women in leadership; inspirational and outward-facing leadership; educational psychology within a Welsh context; appreciative enquiry; recruitment and retention; managing data and quality standards; selling educational psychology services; and more. The book finishes with a section on available support mechanisms for EPs in leadership positions. Leadership for Educational Psychologists will be of great benefit to educational psychologists in leadership, including existing principal and senior educational psychologists, as well as those planning to move into promoted posts within EPSs. It will also be of interest to policymakers in local government, public sector leaders who manage professionals within local authorities, and voluntary and community organisations.

Index 211
"Leadership for Educational Psychologists fills a vital role for the profession. The book provides a comprehensive theoretical as well as practical foundation to leadership, by practitioners who write from direct, valuable experience. The chapters on ethics, working in different teams and dealing with tricky situations, selling services and managing well- being, cover key current issues, and whether one agrees with all the ideas that are described or not, the book raises the right questions. All credit to the authors for producing a much needed book, of value to principals, would-be leaders, and all those engaged in the serious study and practice of educational psychology leadership." - Irvine Gersch, Emeritus Professor and joint originator of the first leadership courses at the University of East London

"This is an overdue text on the nature of leadership within Educational Psychology Services and it provides, with its sections on 'Reflections' and 'Practical themes', a wealth of ideas and resources which should prove invaluable to current and future leaders within EP Services. The range of resources offers leaders ways of conceptualising current concerns they may face in their role, including models, checklists and process frameworks. The variety of topics is vast but I welcome particularly the chapter considering Women in Leadership and also the chapter that discusses dealing with tricky work-based situations. Both these subjects are not particular to EP Services and therefore the book has the potential to inform a much wider audience. I would recommend this book to all who are interested in the development of Educational Psychology Services." - Dr. Jane Leadbetter, Tutor in Educational Psychology and Senior Educational Psychologist
