Another Communication Gap: Can School Psychologists of the USA Learn From Other Nations?

pp. 4—25

Psychological services of professional sophistication and depth are being rendered in the schools of many nations. The school psychology establishment of the USA has deep roots in European psychology, but during the period of its great expansion since WW II, it appears to have paid little attention to the corresponding developments and differing solutions appearing in other countries. American psychologists, including school psychologists, have been wandering about the earth as exchange professors and teachers, Peace Corps volunteers, U.S. Aid consultants, cross-cultural researchers, or just tourists taking random looks and providing requested or unsolicited advice on the professional affairs of the nations we visit. Yet very little about developments in school psychological services abroad has seeped back into the extensive professional literature available in the USA.
