FLORENCE – During the 1999 summer sessions, Francis Marion University will offer three graduate courses in school psychology that especially fit the needs of field psychologists and special education administrators.
Psychology 650, “Professional School Psychology” will be offered during the FMU Summer I session, June 9-July 12. Psychology 642, “Academic Assessment and Interventions,” and Psychology 649, “School Consultation,” will run during the Summer II session, July 14-Aug. 13.
Course topics in “Professional School Psychology” will include exploring various models for the delivery of psychological services in the school setting, reviewing the history of school psychology, and examining contemporary issues in the daily practice of school psychology.
“Academic Assessment and Interventions” is designed to help students learn to link psychological assessment results to academic intervention methods, as well as to help students learn to design and implement academic intervention methods.
“School Consultation” will allow students to evaluate major theoretical approaches to consulting in the school setting and work with students to help train them in the best practices of consultation. FMU’s Psychology 642 and Psychology 649 require students to be concurrently enrolled in a practicum requiring practical experience regarding the skills taught in the courses.
