Educational psychology is a branch of psychology which is now termed 'educational and child psychology' in the United Kingdom since its training overhaul in 2006 to a 3 year taught doctorate similar to that of clinical psychology. In the United States it is still called school psychology. Educational and child psychology is the practice of applied psychology with children and families in the context of education and is usually based within a government local authority.
