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 and related fields with the goal of publishing articles that link theory to practice. To accomplish this, the journal seeks articles that: (1) critically review research on topics of general interest to school psychologists and related disciplines, (2) report on research conducted from different theoretical perspectives and using different methodologies relevant to school-based practitioners, (3) present promising practices or programs that address the needs of children and youth, and (4) critically reflect on the profession of school psychology and the challenges it faces. 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.
