The only book to focus specifically on the supervisory role for the school psychology practicumField and university-based practicum supervisors required to mentor school psychology students are often poorly equipped to fulfill this role with expertise and confidence. This is the first-ever guide for such supervisors who are overseeing school psychology students throughout the course of their practicum. Brimming with practical information, the book explains how to develop, implement, document, and supervise a range of field experiences. It offers resources to support student growth over the course of the practicum experience, including step-by-step information about supervision models, evaluation systems, on-site support, and ways to address common graduate student difficulties.The book is organized around the chronological experience of the trainee, beginning with orientation through transition to internship. Each chapter focuses on three key supervisory roles: student skill development, supervision, and advancement and evaluation. The guide also addresses how university supervisors can communicate and collaborate with each other for additional support. Content aligns with the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) training standards.
