Editorial Comment: An Introduction

pp. 116—120

The Spring Hill Symposium is the first comprehensive examination of school psychology by school psychologists since the Thayer Conference in 1954. That meeting,like the earlier ones at Vail and the University of Chicago, led to modifications in professional practice and training.It is tempting to think that the Spring Hill Symposium, too, will be considered a historic event and that its influence will be traced in the future applications of psychology to the schools.However, conferences and change may be only correlated; national meetings tend to be called at critical points in time, and the points are critical because change is imminent. School psychology is at such a point now.
