Reactions to Olympia: School Psychology Takes the Driver's Seat

pp. 186—188

School psychology had matured to the young adult level and was not only full of energy and growing confidence, but also held a healthy respect for the responsibilities, problems, and potentials that lie ahead. Our basic professional identity crises had been resolved, they were never as great as we imagined, and the time had come to recognize this fact and move on. Concerns regarding identity had gradually been replaced with frustration acknowledging the discrepancy between what we’re capable of and know we should be doing as compared to what we are doing.
