This three-part document contains several presentations and commentaries which represent further elaboration and clarification of the respective positions held by contributors to a 1988 American Psychological Association symposium on futures in school psychology. Part I contains the following presentations: (1) "Conceptualizing the Future of School Psychology" (DeWayne Kurpius and M. Scott); (2) "Instructional Consultation: A Model for Providing Classroom-Based Support Services" (Sylvia Rosenfield); (3) "Cognitive-Behavioral School Psychology: Current Issues and Future Directions" (Jan Hughes); (4) "Early Intervention, Preschool Services, and the Future of School Psychology" (Kathleen Paget); and (5) "Biological Bases of Behavior and School Psychology: Riches or Ruin?" (Cecil Reynolds). Part II contains two commentaries on the foregoing chapters, "Futures in School Psychology: Commentary" (George Hynd) and "Planning the Future of School Psychology" (Michael Curtis). Part III, "What Can We Learn from 'Yertle the Turtle'?" (Marvin Fine), is a critical summing-up of foregoing presentations which includes both reiterations and some additional thoughts on the future of school psychology. (NB)
