WORKFORCE SHORTAGE FOR SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGISTS
(Collecting Data 10/21/2019-5/31/2020)
Researchers at Appalachian State University would appreciate your participation in a study that is being conducted to gain a deeper understanding of workforce shortages in school psychology around the country. The primary goal is to determine a number of variables that impact recruitment and sustainability of our workforce. A secondary purpose is to use the results to make a set of recommendations that might influence the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP), state policies/legislation, university training programs, and state associations. And finally, we hope the results will assist school districts as they engage in recruiting and maintaining a sustainable school psychology workforce. This survey has been approved by the Appalachian State University's Institutional Review Board. The survey can be found at the link below. It should take about 30 minutes to complete and is completely voluntary.

HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT IN THERAPY
(Collecting Data 5/6/2019-3/31/2020)
The purpose of this study is to gain a greater understanding of the role of homework in clinical work with youth, clinicians’ attitudes and practices as it relates to homework, what variables may predict homework use, as well as what types of homework they would assign to a hypothetical case.
Participation in this study will involve completing an online survey in which you would read a short vignette about a clinical problem and complete a brief questionnaire.
Participants will also be asked to complete a demographic and professional background questionnaire. It is anticipated that participation will take approximately 20 minutes.
I am looking to recruit school psychologists and school psychology graduate students, who would be interested in taking part in this study. Your assistance with this study will be an asset to the improvement of the knowledge and understanding of the role of homework in clinical practice.
There is no risk to participation in this study.
