APS College of Educational and Developmental Psychologists

A Welcome from the College Chair

Vicki McKenzie Chair

 

Welcome to the College of Educational and Developmental Psychologists (CEDP).

We are a professional community of psychologists specialising in evidence based developmental and educational approaches to the wellbeing of people across the lifespan. We welcome new members so please consider joining us (How to Join).

Our members apply their skills in many contexts assisting individuals and organisations to foster cognitive, social and emotional learning, connectedness and social support, and individual and group development. Hence you might find Educational and Developmental Psychologists in schools, early developmental services, assessment and treatment clinics for children, disability services, in research centres or universities, and in private practice to mention a few of these contexts.

This website offers more information about who we are and what we do. For more information about the skills and qualifications of Educational and Developmental psychologists, please visit the About Educational and Developmental Psychology section, and for information about Supervisors you can access the College Supervisors Directory.

The College aims to serve, represent and advocate for the professional interests of Educational and Developmental Psychologists. We are committed to extending community understanding of the discipline of Educational and Developmental Psychology so that our members are able to contribute fully in the delivery of psychological services, with acknowledgement of their particular specialised knowledge and experience.

To promote the professional interests of our members we provide professional development activities including a bi-annual conference, a bimonthly Newsletter where members are welcome to contribute, and a useful Discussion Forum on the website.

We have committee members in your state and territory who are listed on this website and you are welcome to contact them directly with any information or concerns.
