This handbook addresses the current state and practice of school psychology with a focus on standards unique to Australia, including historical, legal, ethical, practical, and training factors.
Author: Monica Thielking
This handbook addresses the current state and practice of school psychology with a focus on standards unique to Australia, including historical, legal, ethical, practical, and training factors. It provides a compilation of the most current research-based practices as well as guidelines for evidence-based assessment and intervention for common conditions (e.g., autism, depression, learning disabilities) and for delivering appropriate services to targeted student populations (e.g., LGBT, gifted, medical issues). Chapters discuss the application of national and international school psychology practices within the Australian educational and psychological structure. The handbook also examines the lack of formal resources specific to Australia’s culture and psychology systems, with its unique mix of metropolitan cities and the vast geographic landscape that spans regional and remote areas. It offers numerous case studies and innovative school mental health programs as well as recommendations for professional development and advocacy that are unique to Australian school psychology. Topics featured in this Handbook include: Evidence-based assessment and intervention for dyscalculia and mathematical disabilities. Identification and management of adolescent risk-taking behaviors and addictions. Understanding and responding to crisis and trauma in the school setting. Prevention and intervention for bullying in schools. Class and school-wide approaches to addressing behavioral and academic needs. The role of school psychologists in the digital age. Practical advice for school psychologists facing complex ethical dilemmas. The Handbook of Australian School Psychology is a must-have resource for researchers, scientist-practitioners, and graduate students in child and school psychology, social work, and related fields that address mental health services for children and adolescents.

Both graduate school and the professional role of a school psychologist are demanding and extremely stressful. The rate of burnout for school psychologists at some point in their professional careers is nearly 90% (Randolph & Boan-Lonzo, 2017), while 70% of professional psychology graduate students report stress that is severe enough to interfere with their functioning (El-Ghoroury, Galper, Sawaqdeh, & Bufka, 2012). The best way to inoculate oneself against the effects of these stressors is to develop a strong self-care habit; 80% of those graduate students in professional psychology programs that reported habitually engaging in behaviors of self-care were more successful than those that did not (Colman et al., 2016). However, roughly 30% of graduate programs in psychology even mention self-care in their graduate handbooks, and the handbooks that did mention self-care did so only in the context of distressed students seeking support from a counselor (Zahniser, Rupert, and Dorociak, 2017). This project is a handbook designed to aid graduate students in building their self-care practice into one that will benefit them throughout their professional lives. Specifically, this project examines the physical areas of self-care: diet, exercise, and sleep. The National Association of School Psychologists identified physical self-care as one of three main areas of an effective self-care routine. The project was developed in consultation with a fellow graduate student, who is designing a conjoint project that focuses on the other two areas of self-care named by NASP, social care and emotional health. The project includes information and worksheets to guide students in building their self-care practices as well as useful resources.

This comprehensive handbook offers a beautifully balanced view of the emerging field of multicultural school psychology. The opening section provides an historical overview of how the field has developed, and succeeding sections discuss multicultural issues related to consultation, instructional interventions, alternative assessment, academic assessment, vocational assessment, culturally sensitive counseling models, and working with families and special populations. Theory, research, and practice are integrated throughout. Key features of this exciting new book include: Interdisciplinary Perspective - Many chapters are written by authors from different disciplines, all of whom have multicultural expertise. The last chapter provides summarizing commentaries written by leaders in different disciplines. Scientist-Practitioner Focus - Evidence-based interventions for culturally and linguistically diverse students are provided for major competency areas such as consultation, counseling, and special programs (e.g., bilingual and multicultural education). Assessment Focus - Multicultural and bilingual assessment issues are discussed in the chapters covering language, cognitive, personality, behavioral, neuropsychological, vocational, acculturational, and academic assessment. Special Populations Focus - The needs of special populations such as culturally different parents, gifted and talented children, preschool children, migrant families, and children with low and high incidence learning disabilities are discussed in section VI. This book is appropriate for graduate courses and seminars dealing with multicultural school psychology. It is also a useful reference for researchers and practicing school psychologists and the libraries serving them.

Published with the sponsorship of the Trainers of School Psychologists, this two volume handbook examines the essential tenets of the school psychology profession, critically reviews training and practice issues, and evaluates how the traditional and changing skills and issues translate into meeting the needs of children and the systems that serve them. Volume I focuses on the professional issues and topics that form the core of the university curriculum for the school psychology specialist degree. It explores contemporary university training programs, the foundations of school education, and key areas of responsibility for school-based mental health professionals, and takes a look at the future of training for school psychologists. Specific issues such as the teaching of specialty skills and training for unique areas and special populations are also discussed. By way of raising questions and issues that ultimately play out in the field, it lays the groundwork for Volume II, which is dedicated to bridging the training and practice gap.

Published with the sponsorship of the Trainers of School Psychologists, this two volume handbook examines the essential tenets of the school psychology profession, critically reviews training and practice issues, and evaluates how traditional and changing skills and issues translate into meeting the needs of children and the systems that serve them. Volume II extends the discussion of the training of school psychologists from Volume I to an examination of issues critical to the practice of school psychology, focusing on the roles of the supervisor as trainer in different contexts. Each chapter raises issues for university training in a manner that facilitates the dialogue between university and field trainers. This volume also considers issues of professional development, credentialing, and developing a professional identity, topics that predominate in practice settings yet are typically not addressed in any school psychology text. It concludes by offering recommendations on how the collaboration between university and field-based education can be further improved in the future to anticipate and meet the needs of the next generation of professionals and the children in their care.
The handbook is a cumulation of our collective review of the literature in the areas of burnout, stressors within graduate school as well as the profession of school psychology, and effective self-care practices.
Author: Kristen L'Heureux
School psychologists, like many others in clinical or service providing professions, experience significant stressors in their day to day professional functioning. The literature demonstrates correlations between chronic occupational stressors and burnout and indicates consistent self-care practices can help mitigate symptoms of burnout (De Vibe, Solhaug, Rosenvinge, Tyssen, Hanley & Garland, 2018). Literature is lacking, however, in regard to graduate student stress for students enrolled in school psychology programs. Research conducted on psychology and medical graduate students indicate high degrees of stress and low levels of successful coping strategies; it is likely that similar trends would be found among school psychology graduate students given the similarities in program and training demands (Colman, Echon, Lemay, McDonald, Smith, Spencer & Swift, 2016; Goncher, Sherman, Barnett & Haskins, 2012; Shannon, Simmelink-McCleary, Becher & Crook-Lyon, 2014). The National Association of School Psychologists' ethical standards do not directly address self-care, though the ethical demand for such practices can be derived from the standard directing school psychologists to "take steps to protect all students from reasonably foreseeable risk of harm" (NASP, p.2). Emphasis of self-care during graduate training can provide the basis for a successful self-care system as students enter the profession of school psychology. This paper specifically addresses the emotional, cognitive and social aspects of self-care as they pertain to graduate students enrolled in school psychology programs. The information discussed in this paper supplies part of a handbook created for use by school psychology graduate students to assist in informing the creation of a personal self-care system. Information regarding the physical aspects of self-care, such as care of the body through exercise, sleep and nutrition, is supplied through the work completed by Burlinda Seals, a fellow CSUN graduate student enrolled in the school psychology program. The handbook is a cumulation of our collective review of the literature in the areas of burnout, stressors within graduate school as well as the profession of school psychology, and effective self-care practices.
