Licensed Educational Psychologist (LEP)
About the Program
The Licensed Educational Psychologist Program provides 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 ongoing development of the skills, knowledge, and professional behaviors that enable school psychologists to function at a high level and to engage in independent practice.
Clinical supervision groups will
- Promote reflective practice and continued development of professional knowledge and skills;
- Help the practitioner address challenges in providing schools psychological services; and
- Be applicable toward the 60-hour Supervised Clinical Experience requirements for the Licensed Educational Psychologist (LEP) credential.
This opportunity is open to any graduate of a planned program in school psychology who is concurrently employed as a school psychologist in Massachusetts. It is intended for school psychologists who have little or no access to clinical supervision in their jobs, especially early career school psychologists.
Experienced William James College school psychology trainers who qualify as Approved Supervisors, per Educational Psychologist licensure requirements.
Supervision groups of up to six (6) participants will meet for eight (8) two-hour sessions (approximately biweekly) over the course of a semester.
