Although "School Psychology" first became recognized as a specialty
in professional psychology by CRSPPP in 1998, this area of
psychology can be traced back to the late 19th century, where it
can be thought to have developed alongside "Clinical Psychology"
due to the types of cases seen in Lightner Witmer's Psychological
Clinic that opened in 1896. Over the years, this psychology
specialty has become to encompass the science and practice of
psychology with regard to a wide range of "learners," including
children, youth, and families, as it impacts the schooling or
educational process. In this volume, Drs. Flanagan and Miller
provide a comprehensive overview of the foundational and functional
competencies related to the specialty of school psychology. As the
U.S. attempts to reclaim its stature as a leader in education,
school psychologists are likely to play a crucial role across
multiple tasks and levels. As such, the reader interested in school
psychology will find this volume very "educational." Series in

psychology, clinical neuropsychology, couples and family
