Interested in Publishing an Article in the Student Connections Column?


Klingbeil, David, Peña, Anna, Klotz, Mary Beth, National Association of School Psychologists. Communique


The primary purpose of the Student Connections column of Communiqué is to keep NASP student members informed about the activities, ideas, and experiences of other students in the profession. Articles for the Student Connections column are written primarily by graduate students for graduate students, although faculty trainers and field supervisors are also welcome and encouraged to submit article proposals pertaining to professional development. Some potential topics include:

MAKING CAREER DECISIONS

* Considering after-graduation options, alternatives to the public school setting

* Transitioning across settings, such as moving from a public school setting to private practice

* Deciding to become a professor/trainer

* Going back to graduate school for a doctoral degree or specialized training

* Adding a specialization such as bilingual school psychology, behavior analysis, neuropsychology, etc.

INTERNSHIPS

* Working with supervisors: managing conflicts, making the most of supervision

* Experiences from the field: thing(s) that surprised me most/least

* Chronicle of experience over the course of the year (by an intern or first-year school psychologist)

PROFESSIONAL ISSUES

* Balancing assessment, consultation, intervention, and prevention programs

* Success stories: great experiences with kids

* Ethical dilemmas and how they were handled

* Working with parents/teachers/administrators: positive and challenging experiences

* Partnering with other professionals or outside agencies

* Something great that happens at your school; creative ideas for others; researchbased best practices

* Stories from the frontlines including interesting cases, learning experiences, service learning projects

* Supervision experiences

* Developing and implementing a program or intervention (from personal experience)

* Convention-related topics

* Working with children affected by terrorism/war/other violence

* Working with culturally, linguistically, and ethnically diverse populations

PROPOSALS

Proposals should be submitted to the Student Connections editor at mbklotz@nasp web.org via electronic file in MS Word. Please include the name of each author, school affiliation and program, credentials and degrees, phone number, and e-mail. We strongly encourage students to submit completed manuscripts in lieu of a short proposal. A good place to begin maybe completed class papers and assignments. If a faculty member/trainer/student feels that a paper for a class may address the needs or interests of school psychology students, this paper maybe submitted as a proposal as long as it meets the criteria for manuscripts listed below. The proposal should include the title of the manuscript, subheadings of the areas to be covered, and a welldeveloped outline.

Topics that would not be appropriate for the column include those that have received extensive attention in the literature and have been reported in School Psychology Review or general columns of Communiqué. In addition, students or other individuals submitting proposals for the Student Connections column should avoid submitting articles on topics with which they lack actual experience. Having read or researched a topic is not the same as having hands-on experience with the topic of discussion. Therefore, authors should avoid discussing topics such as response to intervention (RTI) or program evaluation, development, and implementation unless they have actually been the ones to develop and implement the intervention and/or program and are writing about their personal experience.
