In comparison to international perspectives, the specific role of the school psychologist in Hong Kong will provide a case study of the tensions experienced by a system in transition between a very traditional, highly segregated education system, to one that is actively promoting a whole school approach to inclusion. Consideration will initially be given to the development of inclusive education and the identification of quality learning outcomes for students. The role of the school psychologists in Hong Kong and the challenges they face will be compared to other international jurisdictions, focusing on both internal and external influences that have impacted on their role in recent years.
