The Roles of School Psychology Associations in Promoting the Profession, Professionals, and Student Success
Jimerson, Shane R.
International Journal of School & Educational Psychology, v2 n3 p214-222 2014
Professions are strong only to the extent they are represented by active and effective professional associations. Professional associations are strong only to the extent that they are composed of active and effective professionals. This article highlights the belief that the contributions of capable, creative, and committed colleagues who provide leadership and contribute their time, energy, and other resources toward the greater good of the profession constitute the most important components of professional associations. This article also discusses numerous roles school psychology associations play in promoting the specialty of school psychology, including its professional foundations, professionals, and students. The article also describes benefits of professional membership and encourages school psychologists to become involved in their professional associations. Contemporary topics warranting further attention include the globalization of school psychology and the importance of multicultural considerations relevant to school psychology internationally.
