What is a School Psychologist?

School psychologists are mental health professionals who help students succeed academically, emotionally, and socially. They work directly with students of all ages and collaborate with teachers and parents to create a positive learning environment.

The job outlook is very promising for school psychologists. The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts 14% growth in employment rates due to a greater need for mental health services in schools. 

What do school psychologists do?

School psychologists identify, diagnose, and treat students of all ages with learning disabilities, mental health disorders, and cognitive, emotional, social, and behavioral problems. As mental health professionals who understand the link between mental health and learning, they develop plans to address specific issues and, if necessary, refer students to special services or other mental health resources. Other duties may include:

  • Engaging in school-wide mental health activities

  • Engaging in crisis prevention and intervention

  • Providing individual counseling and support groups

  • Assisting educators in implementing safe classrooms and schools

  • Consulting with teachers, administrators, parents, and community mental health providers

  • Serving students with disabilities through special education assessments and placement

Where do school psychologists work?

The majority of school psychologists (81%) work in public school settings, according to the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP). They also may work in private schools, colleges and universities, day care centers, community agencies, juvenile detention facilities, hospitals, clinics, research centers, and private practices. 

What skills make a good school psychologist?

School psychologists must have an in-depth understanding of child and adolescent psychology. They also need advanced knowledge of common learning disabilities, broad and acute spectrum disorders, and behavioral disorders. Other desirable skills include:

  • Team building and de-escalation techniques

  • Complex decision making

  • Data analysis and evaluation

  • Sensitivity to privacy concerns

  • Understanding of legal and compliance rules in a school setting

How to become a travel school psychologist?
