School Psychology: A Historical Perspective

pp. 121—126

Some major historical events are described in this paper to indicate briefly where school psychology has been as a profession in order to suggest where it may be going. From surveys of recent literature and interviews with school psychologists, it is clear that, as a discipline, school psychology is still in its infancy. For example, The Annual Review of Psychology does not include school psychology (the closest topical heading is “Instructional Psychology”); it is not included in the major annotated histories of psychology; and in Education Index, the cross-references for school psychology are special education topics.
