  • Learning Theory and Behaviour Modificationby Stephen Walker

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 44.95

    The ability to learn is of crucial importance in human life, but understanding this ability has proved to be difficult.

  • Intervention with Childrenby Rajinder M. Gupta; Peter Coxhead

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 44.95

    Educational psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and other professionals are often asked by parents or teachers to intervene when ‘normal’ classroom strategies have failed children in their charge.

  • Behaviour Analysis in Educational Psychologyby Kevin Wheldall; Frank Merrett; Ted Glynn

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 44.95

    In the early 1980s there had been a marked increase in the application of behavioural methods in schools. However, much of this work was weak conceptually and limited in its remit. Behaviour analysis has more to offer education than ‘smarties’ and time-out. Originally published in 1986, this collection of twenty papers, many of them experimental,... more...

  • Secondary School Selectionby P.E. Vernon

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 44.95

    Selection for secondary education at 11-plus still arouses widespread controversy; and the psychological techniques which are employed, such as intelligence and attainments tests, are often criticised. Originally published in 1957, under the auspices of the British Psychological Society, a group of psychologists, experienced in this field, tried to... more...

  • Positive Teachingby Kevin Wheldall; Frank Merrett

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 44.95

    Problems of classroom management and control are a recurring concern for many teachers. Disruptive behaviour and inattention hinder effective learning and impose a constant drain upon the teachers’ emotional resources. Continual nagging at children only increases teacher stress: what is needed is an effective alternative set of strategies. Originally... more...
