The Clinical Practice of Educational Therapy
A Teaching Model
Edited by Maxine Ficksman, Jane Utley Adelizzi
Routledge – 2010 – 362 pages
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.
"What is educational therapy? What does an educational therapist do? These questions, and many other subsidiary ones, are answered in a remarkably detailed and insightful new book, The Clinical Practice of Educational Therapy: A Teaching Model. Maxine Flicksman and Jane Utley Adelizzi, both with broad experience in the sometimes labyrinthine world of special education, are the perfect editors for this comprehensive and important book. I predict that it will be a standard in the field of ET for many years to come."—The Educational Therapist
