Special Issue | Submissions Under Review
SPTP is currently reviewing papers for a special series, Demystifying academia: Retooling hidden norms to revitalize school psychology, which will focus on ways to support school psychology faculty in the ongoing work of revitalizing, retooling, and renewing graduate training programs. The intent of this special issue is to illuminate and address hidden norms, culture, and related critical variables so that faculty can learn from one another how school psychology faculty across the country are navigating academia. Papers that focus on "Growing and Becoming" and "Learning and Navigating" are in the review process under the three Guest Editors: Pam Fenning (firstname.lastname@example.org), Sarah-Valley-Gray (email@example.com), and Abi Harris (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please feel free to reach out to the Guest Editors for additional details and timeline for publication.
