Internet and Catalog Representation of Required Intervention and Assessment Training in APA- and/or NASP-Approved Doctoral Programs in School Psychology.
Monville, Amanda; Williams, Robert L.
The purpose of this study was to determine the extent and nature of required intervention and assessment-related course work identified in Internet and catalog sources for American Psychological Association- and/or National Association of School Psychologists-approved doctoral programs in school psychology. These sources provided the necessary information to: (1) construct an overall portrait of required assessment and intervention course work in approved school psychology doctoral programs, and (2) identify leading programs with respect to required course work in these areas. The results indicated that the approved doctoral programs claim slightly more required course work in intervention than in assessment. Approximately 59% of the required intervention course work was reported to be in consultation, counseling/psychotherapy, and behavioral intervention techniques. Within the broad category of assessment, the majority of the required course work (77%) related to indirect rather than direct assessment methods. Overall, no differences emerged between types of approved programs (i.e., APA, NASP, APA/NASP) relative to required course work in assessment and/or intervention. (Contains 32 references.)
