Abstract

A film was made by a group of young people (YP) which aimed to inform educational psychologists (EPs) about how they would like EPs to work with them. A participatory research project was established with the YP which aimed to find out EPs’ views on the film through two focus groups. EPs responded positively to the film; they valued hearing from YP and expressed feelings including pride and guilt . Interest was shown in plans for the distribution of the film and critical reflections on the representativeness of the film were made. Findings are discussed in relation to the current context for EP work in which there is a focus on gaining the voice of children and YP and on improving services through service-user feedback. The authors reflect on the strengths and limitations of using a participatory approach, considering challenges regarding methodological rigour and the opportunity research poses for widening participation.
