RIC's School Psychology Program is part of the Counseling, Educational Leadership, and School Psychology Department (CEP) and is a National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) fully approved, 3-year, integrated, sequential program of study and supervised practice. The program is designed to prepare future school psychologists to provide a range of psychological and educational services with specialized focus on the developmental processes of children and youth within their schools, families, and other social systems. Instructional content is rooted in developing an awareness of and respect for the dignity and worth of all people. Course work integrates theory and research in child and adolescent development, consultation, counseling, assessment, and empirically based interventions. A triadic model of school psychological service delivery is in place emphasizing
- direct intervention
- indirect intervention
An important mission of our program is to develop students' professional attitudes and skills that are essential for lifelong learning and scientific problem solving. We adhere to the reflective practitioner model in preparing highly qualified school psychologists to practice in public schools or related educational settings.
