Hatzichristou, Chryse; Polychroni, Fotini
International Journal of School & Educational Psychology, v2 n3 p154-165 2014
The paper describes the preparation of school psychologists in Greece. It discusses the social and cultural contexts that have influenced the evolution of the discipline of psychology, the beginning of training programs in school psychology, and the current status of school psychological services. The structure of the Graduate Program of School Psychology at the University of Athens, one of the two Greek professional training programs in school psychology, then is featured. The international profile of the faculty and the multicultural orientation of many of its academic and professional activities are described. In addition, the paper also underlines the significance of the involvement of students in prevention and intervention programs as well as in teacher training seminars and conferences. Finally, challenges for this program and for the academic and professional preparation of school psychologists in Greece are discussed.
