    Aims and Scope


    Contemporary School Psychology, formerly known as The California School Psychologist, is a refereed journal published annually by the California Association of School Psychologists (CASP). Contemporary School Psychology is  devoted to contemporary issues in school psychology with the goal of publishing high-quality articles that link theory to practice. The journal is an appropriate venue for articles that: (1) critically review research on topics of general interest to school psychologists in California and nationwide, (2) report research relevant to practicing school psychologists, (3) present promising practices or programs that address the needs of children and youth, and (4) critically reflect on the professional of school psychology and the challenges faced by the profession. It is also the intent of the journal to highlight the diversity of viewpoints in the profession and of the students, parents, and communities served by school psychologists in California and elsewhere.
