SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGY--PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE.
DUNN, JAMES A.
SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGY ENCOMPASSES ANY AREA OF GENERAL PSYCHOLOGY BROUGHT TO BEAR ON ANY PROBLEM OF SCHOOLS, OR PERSONS IN SCHOOLS, OR THE EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS OF SCHOOLS. AFTER WORLD WAR II, THE DEMAND FOR SCHOOL PROVISION OF CLINICAL SERVICES ROSE GREATLY BECAUSE OF THE RECOGNITION OF NEED, AFFLUENCE, AND THE POST-WAR BABY BOOM WHICH MAGNIFIED EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS. SUB-DOCTORAL PROGRAMS ARE DIRECTED TOWARD TURNING OUT PERSONS WHO CAN PROVIDE THE KIND OF CLINICALLY ORIENTED SERVICE THAT PUBLIC SCHOOLS NEED AND DEMAND. ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE THAYER CONFERENCE WAS THE GENERAL AGREEMENT THAT SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGY SHOULD REFLECT NOT ONLY CLINICAL, BUT GENERAL PSYCHOLOGY. IN MICHIGAN, STATE FUNDING IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LIMITED SCOPE OF SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGY BECAUSE THE REIMBURSABLE PROGRAM PLACES RESTRAINTS AND CONSTRAINTS ON THOSE ELIGIBLE TO SERVE AND ON THE NATURE OF THE SERVICE. LITTLE DOCTORAL LEVEL SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGY EXISTS IN MICHIGAN. IN THE FUTURE, SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGY WILL APPLY GENERAL PSYCHOLOGICAL PRINCIPLES AND METHODS TO SCHOOL PROBLEMS.
