School Psychology Training and Pedagogy

School Psychology Training and Pedagogy (SPTP), formerly known as the Trainers’ Forum, is a double-masked, peer-reviewed, and indexed journal featuring original articles relevant to the preparation of school psychologists.

The journal is designed for a readership of trainers who shape the field of school psychology, including graduate instructors, field supervisors, teaching assistants, and scholars. The SPTP editorial team is excited to share their goals for the journal’s direction:

(1) Advance pedagogy and training through reflection and practice;

(2) Encompass the varied levels, settings, and topics represented in school psychology graduate training; and

(3) Examine and respond to the sociocultural context in which training occurs.

The editorial team invites SPTP readers to learn more about these goals, author guidelines, and types of articles accepted at

It has been one year since the relaunch of SPTP! To thank our community of trainers, TSP members, editorial board members, and SPTP authors, we are offering a free bundle of articles that focus on supporting graduate student development on our website, 

We believe these articles are an especially timely resource given the increasingly globalized, tech-forward, and racialized school environments for which we are preparing our students:
