Call to Participate in a Dissertation Study About Rural School Psychologists
My dissertation study seeks to elevate the voices and experiences of rural school psychologists who consult with teachers on trauma-informed practices. If you are interested, please complete this initial survey to determine if you are eligible for the study. Participants may either be eligible to participate in a 60-90 minute interviews about their experience or be invited to participate in a professional learning series that targets early career practitioners who wish to gain a strong knowledge based in trauma-informed consultation. This study is significant for the field because it highlights how mixed methods designs can be utilized to develop community responsive professional learning opportunities for subgroups of school psychologists. It will also illuminate the methods that expert rural school psychologists use to consult with teachers on TIPs, which may provide future directions for graduate training programs, professional learning training, key stakeholders, and research studies. Last, this study will advance understanding of the needs of rural school psychologists as school-based mental health providers who use consultation to support their school districts in being trauma-informed.
School Psychologists’ Knowledge, Attitudes, and Preparedness In Addressing Disordered Eating
Within the public school setting, school psychologists are responsible for providing direct mental health services, coordinating additional school-based services, and managing outside referrals for students. In order to appropriately address disordered eating behaviors in students, school psychologists must possess the necessary knowledge and skills to participate in effective prevention and intervention efforts. The way in which school psychologists respond to students that are exhibiting or at-risk of disordered eating behaviors is very likely to be influenced by their knowledge in this area, and their beliefs regarding their scope of practice with this population. Therefore, the purpose of the proposed study is to gain an understanding of school psychologists’ knowledge of school-based eating disorder services, as well as their attitudes regarding their role in addressing disordered eating in schools.
