Acquire the values, attitudes, and skills to effectively supervise school psychologists!

Skilled and well-trained school psychologists are critical to students' well-being and academic success. This second and substantially revised edition of Effective Supervision in School Psychology comprehensively addresses the administrative and clinical supervision skills necessary for school psychologists to thrive and offers guidelines for fostering the growth of both new and seasoned professionals.

The authors discuss school psychologists' expanding roles in offering prevention and intervention services, using evidence-based practices, and demonstrating measurable outcomes to help schools meet legal mandates for accountability. This new edition also has an increased focus on system-based delivery, multicultural issues, and clinical supervision. Chapters provide school psychologists, staff developers, and school and district administrators with:

  • Multiple vignettes illustrating the principles presented
  • Tools for assessing supervisor effectiveness, including ready-to-use questionnaires and evaluation forms
  • Methods for evaluating professional growth
  • Sample supervisory dilemmas and reflection questions for individual or group study

Effective supervision facilitates the essential ongoing professional development—and enhanced competency—of school psychologists. Based on the most current research, this practical guide helps school leaders meet the needs of new and veteran school psychologists through effective mentoring, clinical supervision, and administrative support.
