The History of ECAP

Child and adolescent psychology research has a strong heritage in the University of Edinburgh. Today, child and adolescent psychology research in the University of Edinburgh is distributed across three strong centres: the Department of Clinical Psychology, the Department of Psychology, and Moray House School of Education. Each centre has a team of academics and research students whose research focuses on specific aspects of child and adolescent psychology. These teams came together in 2012 to form the ECAP Network.
