School Psychology

The School Psychology programs (PsyD and CAS) at the University are premised on an ecological perspective of human behavior and the provision of psychological services in schools. We view behavior as a complex result of interactions between various social and psychological systems within which children and adolescents develop. This philosophical position, which is supported by empirical research, requires that students in our program have a thorough understanding of individual, contextual, and environmental variables that affect children’s behavior. Effective assessment and intervention requires a thorough grasp of children’s ecologies and the ways in which schools and school personnel affect students academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally.
