The preparations for and the implementation of the 2002 Multisite Conference on the Future of School Psychology are described.The conference goals were to (a) achieve consensus on current and future demands for school psychologists and our profession's ability to meet those demands; (b) conceptualize the practice of school psychology in the face of diminishing numbers and increasing demand for services; and (c) develop an agenda to use the resources we have to maximize the benefits to the children and schools that we serve.A problem-solving model served as the conceptual foundation of the conference.
