SP 415 - Professional Development I

The Professional Development Group is a two-course series (fall and spring semester) in which students explore issues of professional and career development in school psychology; become orientated to The Chicago School and the field of psychology as a whole; review policies and procedures of the program; learn and demonstrate mastery of program technology requirements; discuss the implementation of APA and NASP ethical guidelines; plan for progression through the program; develop skills in self-evaluation and reflection; and begin their first shadowing field experience (120 hours total). The student’s goals and intended use of the electronic portfolio are introduced and its implementation is planned during these courses. (Lab Fee) (Pass/Fail) (1 credit)
