    Description for Part-time Coordinator/Supervisor of School Psychology Field Experiences and Training

    The School Psychology Program within the Department of Psychology maintains two, overlapping but separate, professional training programs: a PhD program, and a MS program (a 3 year full-time program). This position is critical to the maintenance and further development of the program practica and internship components necessary to maintain current program accreditation by APA and approval by NASP.

    The School Psychology Program is seeking an individual who is both a RI licensed psychologist and a RI certified school psychologist to provide supervision to graduate students in various practicum placements and internships (schools, hospitals, and other servicedelivery agencies) throughout Rhode Island, and in nearby Massachusetts and Connecticut. Compensation is equivalent to two per-course sections per semester, approximately $8K per semester. The position will begin in January 2019 (spring semester).

    The following is a list of required duties: • Provide group supervision for all practicum and internship students in school psychology through weekly supervision meetings (i.e., PSY 670 and PSY 698). Note: a minimum of weekly supervision of all practicum experiences by a licensed psychologist is expected, as per APA Accreditation guidelines. • Maintain contact with all supervisors and sites during the semester, and visit each site at least one time during the semester (as per Rhode Island Department of Education guidelines). • Maintain a minimum of bi weekly contact by phone and e-mail to out-of-state supervisors and interns. • Conduct a survey of potential sites and supervisors in the region to determine interest in and appropriateness of placements in their settings. • Negotiate and develop new internships and practicum sites in Rhode Island. • Attend and participate in all School Psychology Program Faculty meetings. • Prevent and manage problems that can occur during practicum placements/internships, which may involve increased contact with supervisors/students as warranted. • Distribute, collect, and collate student evaluation forms at the end of the semester. • Coordinate appropriate practicum and internship placements for fall semester of 2019. • Assist students in the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) application process. • Distribute, collect, review, and sign student practicum and internship hours for the semester and coordinate appropriate storage of these materials with the Graduate Administrative Assistant. • Update Practicum and Internship Handbook

    Please submit a letter of interest and a vitae to: Deena Mandes,  Department of Psychology, Chafee Hall, 142 Flagg Road, Kingston, RI 02881 or electronically to dmandes@uri.edu by December 1, 2018.

    Dear school psychologists,
    We are asking for your help in completing an online survey part of a research study about school reintegration policies, procedures, and services that are available to youth returning to middle and high school following psychiatric hospitalization. It is open to all school psychologists working in a school serving middle or a high school students (i.e., serving grades 6-12). The survey is web-based and will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.  For our results to accurately represent schools across the nation, your participation is very helpful and would be much appreciated.



    Take the School Reintegration Survey to complete the survey.


    You may also copy and paste the link below: https://unc.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1TBzjMd2ySclTsF


    If you decide to participate, you will be asked a series of questions about the schools in which you work, the populations your schools serve, and the available policies, procedures and services to students returning to schools following psychiatric hospitalization.

    Your answers will be completely confidential and will not be linked to any identifying information. This means that no identifying information (i.e. your name or email) can be associated with any of your responses.


    Your participation is completely voluntary. Although we hope you fill out the survey in its entirety, you can skip any questions you do not wish to answer.

    If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Marisa Marraccini, School of Education (919) 843-5099.


    This research has been reviewed by The University of North Carolina Institutional Review Board.

    Thank you!
