Educational Psychologists' Perspectives on Their Professional Practice in Newfoundland and Labrador
Harris, Gregory E.; Joy, Rhonda M.
Canadian Journal of School Psychology, v25 n2 p205-220 2010
Educational psychology is in the midst of examination and potential change in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Unfortunately, there has been a paucity of published empirical research investigating educational psychology in the province. The current study surveyed educational psychologists from the four English districts in Newfoundland and Labrador to investigate areas such as current and preferred work activities, typical assessment and counselling practices, and psychological test access and perceived test usefulness. Results highlighted a range of current and preferred work activities, with psychoeducational assessment as the most time consuming responsibility. Although some findings varied between school districts, participants overall reported preferring increased amounts of time to devote to areas such as prevention, counselling, and research. Implications for training, future research, and practice are discussed. (Contains 4 tables and 2 notes.)
