Originally published in 1986, the volume is organized into three parts: Basic Issues, Models and Settings, and Evaluation and Development. The Editors begin with a description of the major conceptual dimensions and the fundamental questions that affect the practice of school psychology. Part 2 focuses on psychological service delivery issues as they are affected by particular models of service delivery and the settings in which a service is provided. Part 3 consists of various evaluation and development issues that influence school psychology. Taken together, the chapters provide a comprehensive view of major service delivery issues within school psychology. In addition, virtually all of the chapters offer suggestions about needed directions for the field and many identify avenues by which these new directions can be accomplished.
