Providing a Continuum of Professional Training: The Nebraska Psychology of Scholing Project and The Nebraska Internship Consortium in Professional Psychology

pp. 551—564

Abstract: Two projects undertaken by the School Psychology Program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are described. Both projects evolved from the desire to improve the quality and quantity of training opportunities available to school psychology students. The Nebraska Psychology of Schooling Project is a cooperative public school/university program targeted at improving practicum sites and experiences. The project is designed to provide exposure to the process of changing psychological services in schools; experience with a problem-solving oriented,consultation-based model of psychological services; and involvement in research targeted at evaluating project outcomes. The Nebraska Internship Consortium in Professional Psychology was developed to ensure the availability of high quality internships for students in our training program. The consortium is now APA approved and consists of 13 cooperating agencies offering broad-based supervised experiences for doctoral clinical, counseling, and school psychology interns from across the nation.
