Originally published in 1989, school psychology, according to the contributors of this unique volume, is an approach to problem solving, not simply a setting- specific profession. Following Lightner Witmer's original notion, the editors lay a foundation for the field of school psychology in "nontraditional" settings.
Such nontraditional practice stems from data showing that school psychologists display skills and abilities that can be applied successfully to a variety of client needs in numerous settings. This special book directly affects both the practicing school psychologist and those in training, as well as professionals and students in clinical child psychology, counseling, and educational psychology.
