School Psychology: More Than the Sum of its Parts: Legends on Journeys Through Time
Nadine M. Lambert
I considered developing this legend as a story of a school psychologist growing an identity through time and testing that identity in many different contexts, or as a description of my observations of school psychology over time. But these linear story lines read like a paper on the role of the school psychologist or one on the history of school psychology. Instead, the legend should has six short stories about school psychology, each with at least one moral to guide the future. I don’t have catchy titles for the stories but I have named them: Becoming a school psychologist; Gaining a Statewide Perspective on School Psychology; Shaping School Psychology from Organizational and Political Platforms;Challenging Conceptual and Professional Growth–The Years at UC Berkeley; Promoting School Psychology on the National Political Scene; and, Forecasting a Future for School Psychology–Back to the Future.
