Psy.D. in School Psychology
Core Competencies of the School Psychologist
The PsyD in School Psychology Program is based on the Practitioner-Scholar model of training that was developed at the 1973 Vail Conference on Levels and Patterns of Professional Training in Psychology. The goal of the Practitioner-Scholar model is to develop and produce practitioners informed by research as well as practitioners whose training prioritizes the acquisition of practical and hands-on-experiences.
The PsyD in School Psychology Program provides a comprehensive plan of advanced studies that integrates respect for diversity and social justice in theory and practice, basic and advanced psychological principles, consultative and interventionist skills, data-based and problem-solving approaches, and scholarly and research-based learning that moves forward the field of school psychology and the practice with students who are deaf and hard of hearing. School psychologists who are skilled in the delivery of multiple services in a variety of settings (schools, private practice, hospitals, clinics, universities, etc.)
The aims and competencies of the PsyD in School Psychology Program are interconnected with APA’s Standards of Accreditation, NASP’s graduate education training standards, and the program specific aims and competencies. To achieve its aims and competencies, the program is built on two connected goals consistent with the training of health service providers: Professional-Wide Competencies (skill that are key to the preparation for the practice in health service psychology), and Discipline-Specific Knowledge (knowledge that is the basis of identity as a psychologist with focus as a health service provider) as outlined by the Standards of Accreditation of the American Psychological Association through the framework of a scholar-practitioner training approach
