Characteristics of school psychology program directors and program production
Conducted a survey to determine how directors of school psychology programs receive their preparation and what kinds of programs they direct. 157 returned questionnaires revealed that directors came from a wide variety of preparatory departments; were predominantly men; were mostly in departments of education, where they prepared specialists for the schools; and had served as director for less than 4 yrs. A majority had had field practice. Their duties were comparable to those of directors of clinical programs. School psychologist programs currently produce nearly 10 times as many subdoctoral as doctoral graduates. (8 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
