Annual Institute

School Psychology > Annual Institute

The Graduate Programs in School Psychology and the Department of Psychology sponsor the School Psychology Institute. The Institute presenters are national leaders in school psychology and related areas who impact the practices of school psychologists. The Institute includes a skill-based workshop in the morning for community mental health professionals, graduate trainees, and interested faculty. In the afternoon, the speaker presents a research colloquium that is open to the public. After the colloquium, an informal meeting is held with the speaker and current school psychology doctoral trainees to further discuss the speaker’s research and other professional issues that impact the field of school psychology.
