Training Programs in School Psychology

pp. 16—33

School psychologists are trained, as psychological specialists, to work in a variety of applied settings, primarily educational in nature. Training usually takes place in psychology or education departments, or under dual sponsorship. School psychology training programs are accredited through two groups at the national level, the American Psychological Association (APA) and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) . The American Psychological Association is the largest professional association of psychologists representing all areas of specialization. The Educational Affairs Office of APA is responsible for the accreditation of doctoral programs in clinical, counseling and school psychology. Programs seeking accreditation from APA do so on an elective basis.
