Licensed Educational Psychologist Seminars
Clinical Supervision for Practicing School Psychologists
Fall 2021 and Spring 2022
The Tufts University School Psychology Program is pleased to announce that we are now offering group supervision for practicing school psychologists. Clinical supervision promotes reflective practice, supports ongoing professional development, affords consultation on legal and ethical issues, and helps practitioners effectively address the challenges of providing school psychological services. Clinical supervision is essential for the ongoing development of the skills, knowledge, and professional practices that enable school psychologists to function at a high level and to engage in independent practice.
Participation in a clinical supervision group will:
- Promote reflective practice knowledge and skills;
- Help the practitioner address challenges in providing school psychological services; and
- Be applicable toward the 60 hours required for the Licensed Educational Psychologist (LEP) credential.
- Be applicable toward the one year professional support requirement for first renewal of the NCSP (for school psychologists applying for the NCSP after December, 2015) as well as be eligible for up to 20 credits of continuing education. 1
Participants: This opportunity is open to any graduate of an approved program in school psychology who is concurrently practicing in Massachusetts. It is intended for school psychologists
who have limited access to clinical supervision in their jobs, particularly early career school psychologists. Participants may plan to enroll in a one year cycle for meeting the NCSP renewal
requirement, or a two year cycle, to meet the LEP requirement.
Supervisors: Clinical Group supervisors are experienced school psychologist educators and supervisors who qualify as Approved Supervisor, in accordance with Educational Psychologist licensure requirements.
Schedule: Supervision groups of up to six participants meet in 8 two-hour sessions over the course of a semester (approximately bi-weekly). For the Fall of 2021, supervision will be offered remotely
with in-person meetings if arranged by supervisor and participant agreement to promote collaboration. Priority for Fall registration will be given to continuing participants from the prior
year and to those on the wait list. Priority for Spring registration will be given to continuing Fall participants. See notes on meeting format in instructors section and Tentative Meeting Schedule.
Fee: $400 per semester.
To register: Contact Laura Rogers, Ed.D., Department of Education, Tufts University and indicate your preference and availability for each day.
Note: To receive CPD credits when renewing an NCSP, submit the co-signed Professional Support Verification form.
