Book Description

Written in a clear and accessible style, this book presents a wealth of practical information to guide the next generation of educational and developmental psychologists in Australia and New Zealand in pursuing a career in the field.

There are over 800 educational and developmental psychologists in Australia, and over 200 educational psychologists in New Zealand, who represent a diverse workforce. Pathways to becoming an educational and developmental psychologist have seen rapid shifts with updated key competencies that prospective educational and developmental psychologists need to be aware of. This book gives the reader a comprehensive understanding of what makes an educational and developmental psychologist and outlines seven steps required to become an endorsed educational and developmental psychologist. Specifically, it offers guidance on understanding the role and its history, tertiary study requirements, registration requirements, professional competencies, skills and attributes needed, work experience, professional associations and member groups, endorsement and supervision requirements, finding work and starting work. With a primary focus on Australia, each chapter also features a section on the career in New Zealand, with a variety of psychologists sharing their expertise and reflections from their experiences in New Zealand.

This resource is essential reading for students, provisional psychologists, and practising psychologists. At the same time, it provides insights for other educational and health professionals who may work multi-, inter- or transdisciplinary with educational and developmental psychologists.
