Educational psychology - a profession or a vocation

Interview with Paul Attard-Baldacchino

Paul Attard-Baldacchino

Working with children on a psychological level is not a profession one can consider lightly. In fact, Paul believes that it is more a vocation where people should feel that they are really capable of working with children, especially when it comes to their psychological wellbeing.

Paul takes his profession at heart and has dedicated himself to working with and helping children even though things can get emotional.

With a PhD in educational and child psychology from the university of East London Paul Attard-Baldacchino has managed to obtain a serious post within a government department in Malta as an educational psychologist.
