Program Philosophy

The philosophical foundation of the Program is grounded solidly in the viewpoint that the school psychologist is an educated mental health professional able to bring critical reflection, data-based decision-making, and applied skills to address complex problems. The Program stresses the need for school psychologists to understand the psychological, socio/cultural, environmental, political, and economic influences that shape the behavior of children, families, and school personnel. Our students can apply their training as an activist problem-solver within the school setting, taking a proactive stance in the best interests of children.
