School Psychology

Established in 1965, the Berkeley School Psychology Program prepares graduates to assume leadership roles as practicing school psychologists, researchers, university educators, and program directors at the local, state and national levels.  Grounded in a scientist-practitioner model of education and training, the program emphasizes a cognitive-developmental perspective and a school-based mental-health consultation model of service delivery.
