Ensuring the Availability and Quality of School Psychology Doctoral Internships
Harris, Abigail M.
Psychology in the Schools, v52 n10 p946-961 Dec 2015
Currently, only a small percentage of internships accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) are filled by school psychology interns and only a few of the available APA internship positions are in schools. Program data submitted online to APA indicate that many interns are in sites that meet the guidelines adopted by the Council of Directors of School Psychology Programs (CDSPP). This article compares the APA internship accreditation policies with the CDSPP internship guidelines and draws on several sources of internship and program data to analyze the "supply" and "demand" issues for school psychology programs and interns.
