As a parent I have met Educational Psychologists (EP) but as a teacher I haven't, so it was fascinating to hear about how varied the job of an EP is and the work that Dan does with teachers. Working with such a wide range of people and organisations enable EPs to see the big picture of SEND across a county, understand best practice and support teachers with the day-to-day challenges they face in the classroom.
Dr Dan O'Hare is an Educational Psychologist who currently works
for Gloucestershire County Council and as a professional
tutor on the doctoral EP training courser at the University of
He is the current co-chair elect of the Division of Educational and Child Psychology and in this role has contributed to a range of guidance regarding the wellbeing of children, young people, and teachers during the coronavirus pandemic.
He is also the founder of edpsy.org.uk - an online magazine for educational psychologists. Dan can often be found on twitter @edpsydan tweeting about all things educational psychology.
