Division 16: School Psychology is composed of scientific-practitioner psychologists whose major professional interests lie with children, families and the schooling process. The division represents the interests of psychologists engaged in the delivery of comprehensive psychological services to children, adolescents and families in schools and other applied settings. The division is dedicated to facilitating the professional practice of school psychology and actively advocates in domains, such as education and health care reform, which have significant implications for the practice of psychology with children. Members receive the journal School Psychology Quarterly and the quarterly newsletter The School Psychologist. The division welcomes student members. Non-doctoral-level school psychologists and practitioners are welcome to join the division as professional affiliates.
