The School Psychologist: Advocate for Children at Risk.
Jensen, Mary Cihak
OSSC Bulletin, v29 n3 Nov 1985
This monograph characterizes the profession of school psychology, describes the roles of school psychologists in the Eugene (Oregon) Public Schools, and profiles Patricia Glassow, recently named School Psychologist of the Year by the Oregon School Psychologists Association. Among those interviewed were the school superintendent, the director of the school psychology program at the University of Oregon, several principals, and a parent. The interviews provided the background for this examination of the profession of school psychologist and the population served in this district. The nine psychologists in this district form an internal support structure in which individual strengths can be shared to meet the demands of sometimes complex cases. Their job descriptions emphasize three major roles: diagnostician, consultant, and case manager. Increasingly, school psychologists see themselves speaking in the interest of students to teachers, administrators, and parents. Names of those interviewed and a nine-item bibliography follow the text. (MLF)
