Who is a Psychologist in ES

This space is dedicated to the development of a European description of what is a 'Psychologist in the Education System'. What are typical professional acts, how is the position in relation to other professionals, what is a typical status, how does the optimal qualification look like, what kind of optimal legal regulations exist etc.?

Please have a look at the N.E.P.E.S. presentation of 'The role of Psychologists in the Education System' at the Cross Policy Workshop of the European Commission for Mental Health Strategies in the sector of youth and education in 2007 attached on this page or on the description of an official UK graduate careers website on educational psychologists. Also interesting is the result you get looking for 'Educational Psychologist' on the Eurydice Website, which is the official Information Network on Education in Europe. Please find here what a European Citizen learns about our profession.

It would be interesting to learn about your job description. Thus we propose to start a collection of model contracts for psychologists in the education system in order to develop a reference frame of optimal working conditions.

We are looking forward to your contributions, comments, ideas, examples, proposals!
