Education and Psychology in Interaction: Working with Uncertainty in Interconnected Fields
The fields of education and psychology have attracted an increasing volume of attention in recent years. The profile of psychology and psychologists has risen in societies which are eager to understand the nature of human well-being and the conditions which can promote it. Education, for its part, has become a central element of social and economic policy across the globe, in line with changes in the technological basis of the economy, and in society and the family. This book takes an in-depth look at how education and psychology have related to each other, and at the state of this relationship. Through analysis of the ideological, historical, social and professional contexts of this interaction, the author develops the theme that, despite basic differences in aims, the fields are interconnected. Indeed, neither can realize its aims without recognizing this inter-dependence.
