About School Psychology India
 
School Psychology India

School Psychology, India is an association of school and college serving psychologists all over the india and other countries to connect, inform, inspire, share, and care for students, schools, colleges, universities  and families.  School Psychology India is a nonprofit association and a non-Governmental Organization deployed to promote and develop school psychology, its practitioners and the profession by training, researching and working collbarelty with all the international associations and organizations of school Psychology.

The awareness on the concept of school psychology hit the Indian subcontinent in the recent times dating back to 2006 and the first paper on school psychology was presented at Colombo, Srilanka at an International Conference on November 26, 2006. Since then, there was no looking back; there has been a lot of networking, resource sharing, and strengthening of the profession in order to meet the demands of the students and schools in India.

Our Association provides ample opportunities for resource sharing and professional development through regular events, Continuing education programs as well as conferences and forums to discuss the complex aspects of working in schools and colleges. The professional events are open to non-members as well. We also focus on the budding school psychologists and we are looking forward to working with young people and various school systems.

School Psychology India membership includes school psychologists and counselors who are employed across the countries in public and private schools, colleges and educational institutions, including faculty and students in graduate training programs.
