Ed Psych Insight?
I'm Dr Chris Moore and I currently work as an Educational Psychologist. In the past, I've worked as a teaching assistant in a post-primary setting and a counsellor and supervisor at a national helpline. I've also had the privilege to be involved in voluntary work with children and adults with additional needs.
I joined Twitter under the handle of "Ed Psych Insight", with the aim of reading and sharing insight from a range of people - including teachers, teaching assistants, parents and a broad range of educational and health professionals.
I continue to be inspired and humbled by the stories of those who strive to help children and young people manage their special educational and mental health needs. As you'll see from my tweets, I like to chip in with my own views as well! I am passionate about topics such as attachment, trauma, mental health and stress.
Using the famous philosophy of "Giving Psychology Away", I decided to start this blog to offer my own nuggets of advice, based on the training, research and experiences afforded to me in my role. I hope you find them useful and please feel free to share!
