Sally L. Grapin, John H. Kranzler

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


School Psychology: Professional Issues and Practices, Second Edition, serves as a comprehensive introduction to the practice and profession of school psychology for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. The second edition delivers updated content that reflects the newly released National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) Professional Standards and offers new chapters on antiracism; international school psychology; school psychology research; crisis prevention and intervention; and family, school, and community collaboration. Woven throughout is pertinent information on telehealth and COVID-19. The second edition reflects the perspectives of authors with a diverse range of cultural identities, and also includes a glossary of key terms and abundant recommendations for further reading. The first section of the book addresses the historical, multicultural, training, legal, and ethical foundations of school psychology. The second section describes the roles and functions of the school psychologist and meets the learner’s needs by first outlining the most basic principles of assessment and intervention and then describing their application to various areas of practice. Finally, the book describes anticipated trends in practice and present steps for embarking on a career in school psychology. All chapters—clearly mapped to the NASP Practice Model—integrate content on systematic injustice in schools and the psychologist’s role in advancing equity. The text contains many features designed to facilitate learning, including Chapter Objectives, Social Justice Connections, Discussion Questions, and Recommended Readings. Instructors also have access to sample course syllabi, a Test Bank, and chapter PowerPoints.
