Hosszú leírás:
The discipline of school psychology has been shaped over the course of its existence by a series of professional and scientific controversies, and by how researchers and practitioners have responded to those controversies. Should there be an entry-level degree requirement for school psychologists? What should a school psychologist's role be with regard to student mental health? Should school psychologists work outside of school settings?

Designed for students entering school psychology training programs, Introduction to School Psychology: Controversies and Current Practice examines the debates that have influenced the nature and scope of the profession, and that continue to do so today. This edited textbook is divided into five sections, the first of which describes current practices. The second offers coverage of ethics and relevant legal concerns for school psychologists; cultural competence; and consultation. The
third section provides readers with the theoretical foundations of practice and includes a brief chapter on theoretical orientations. The fourth and largest section of the book examines the controversies that shape practice, presenting chapters on idiographic and nomothetic approaches; diagnostic frameworks;
assessment and treatment of behavioral disorders; and much more. The final section of the book focuses on contexts and the future of the profession, with chapters on practice in urban and rural communities, technology, and the Futures Conferences.

A unique and refreshing way to introduce students to the profession of School Psychology. In this comprehensive text, Burns has pulled together leaders in the profession to provide concise perspectives on important issues and controversies. This is in addition to providing basic information about the profession, its history, ethical considerations, alternative roles, etc. Time is not wasted on provision of information on specific content domains that will be covered
in other graduate courses. A easy reading, very interesting and informative introduction to the excitement of this profession.
