Toward a Framework for Translational Research in School Psychology
Edwards, Oliver W.
School Psychology Forum, v11 n1 p1-4 Spr 2017
This article addresses a translational research framework for school psychology. Translational research uses outcomes of basic and applied science to enhance the overall well-being of persons. This transdisciplinary framework connects disciplines and uses their resources, capacities, systems, and procedures to advance prevention, intervention, and diagnosis. In order for this advancement to occur, research outcomes must quickly reach the field-based setting and the research findings must result in efficient and effective practices that can be readily implemented by the practitioner. Translational research studies published in "School Psychology Forum" are intended to quickly promote the application of promising new evidence-based practices in real-world contexts such as schools, homes, and communities. In addition, primary prevention models of school psychology practice are emphasized. This emphasis will help school psychologists promote the development of all children. By promoting child development across the spectrum of psychoeducational, psychosocial, and physiological well-being, school psychologists help to perpetuate the profession and expand their opportunities to be of service to potentially all students.
