Edizioni Centro Studi Erickson, founded by two young psychologists, Dario Ianes and Fabio Folgheraiter, in 1984, was originally a centre for reintegration and rehabilitation of persons with mental disabilities, that used to conduct researches, training and consulting activities in the field of teaching and social work Shortly after the opening of the centre, Italy passed laws prescribing the inclusion of persons with disabilities in primary and secondary schools and in workplaces The implication was that most of psychologists, educators, support teachers and volunteers, at that time, needed an adequate training to handle the new scenario Erickson took up the challenge and started a process of cultural mediation translating and publishing theories, methodologies and experiences, mainly coming from UK and USA, which reached a wide circulation and enjoyed an extraordinary reception all over Italy.
This is why and how Erickson, thanks to its high scientific standards, has become a leader in Italy in publishing, software creation, training and research in the fields of teaching, education, learning disabilities, special needs, full inclusion, applied and clinical psychology, social work and welfare.
Our publications are well known and much appreciated because they couple innovative theory and methodology with operational suggestions, case studies and good practices.
Beside all volumes addressed to professionals, the catalogue has been enriched with a series of books, called Capire con il Cuore (tr Understand with the Heart), which focuses on our themes, such as personal education, emotions, love, personal growth, self-help strategies, disabilities and social life, but with a nonspecialist slant.
Our SW department has developed several classroom software, mainly addressed to preschool, primary and secondary school, that bring together learning and playing Noteworthy are also our brand new multimedia platforms for learning and education created for school operators and professionals.
Our training and research department, well-known Italian leader in proposing training activities for teachers, pedagogues, educators, school professionals and social workers, organizes every year a variety of training solutions: online courses, seminars, workshops and international conferences.
