This groundbreaking text on the practice of educational therapy offers valuable clinical training perspectives for both experienced and aspiring educational therapists, as well as other allied professionals. The chapters include rationale for the significance of educational therapy in a diagnoses-driven society. Each contributing author provides the reader with reflective analyses based on case studies which exemplify how the learning experiences of clients impact their sense of self, and the degree of tenacity with which they pursue further challenges in the classroom, the workplace, and in relationships.
The Clinical Practice of Educational Therapy is the first book to provide a comprehensive review of the interdisciplinary profession and practice of educational therapy, as it exists today. It describes the scope and practice of educational therapy from its European roots to its growing presence in the United States, and provides case studies to illustrate the work of educational therapists. In addition to educational therapy students and practitioners, this book is appropriate for those working in related fields including special education, school psychology, school counseling, and social work in educational settings.
