Psychologists in Schools

Welcome to the APS Interest Group on Psychologists in Schools website.

The APS Psychologists in Schools Interest Group provides a forum for all psychologists working or intending to work in schools around Australia to network, share information and be informed about current issues that affect school psychological practice.

We are looking forward to your participation and contribution in sharing good practices and discussing interesting issues.
