The NASP Program for Continuing Professional Development

pp. 70—83

There is perhaps no other single sub-specialty within the field of psychology on which there is a greater demand for continuing professional development than school psychology. Major spokesmen for the field continually point out the ambiguous nature of our past and future. There are two national organizations which represent our interests in what, at times, appear to be very different ways. Identity, both within our ranks and in the eyes of our consumers, is still a critical issue, unresolved (and perhaps unresolvable) some twenty-odd years after our inception. A wide internal schism still exists between the master’s and doctoral school psychologist in terms of training, job role and professional identity. Perhaps the clearest statement one can make about our future is that it is unclear. How can we best assure our preparedness for this uncertainty?
