NASP is pleased to announce that Dr. Steven R. Shaw has been appointed editor-elect of the School Psychology Forum. Ray Christner, the first and current editor, will mentor Steve during his "elect" year (2010), and Steve will assume editor duties in January 2011. The new editor-elect of the School Psychology Forum brings to this position 20 years of experience as a school psychologist practicing in schools, hospitals, independent practice, and universities in the United States. These experiences include 7 years of administrative and budgeting experience as lead school psychologist with the Children's Hospital in Greenville, SC. This breadth of experience as a practitioner, supervisor, and administrator provides him with a strong grounding and understanding of the issues and needs of clinical practice. In 2005, he changed careers to become a researcher and trainer of school psychologists at McGiIl University (recently ranked by the U.S. News and World Report as the #12 ranked research university in the world). He has published over 100 scholarly papers and presented over 160 papers, posters, and workshops on the topics of pediatric psychology, special education, and school psychology.
Steve's editorial experiences include being coeditor of the Pediatric School Psychology column (2003-present) and contributing editor (2001-present) for Communiqué. He is currently working on the latest edition of the popular NASP publication, Helping Children at Home and School, as the junior editor with Andrea Canter and Leslie Paige. He is on the editorial advisory board of School Psychology Forum, Journal of Applied School Psychology, and Pakistan Journal of Psychological Research. Steve has served as an ad hoc reviewer for several journals over the years including the Journal of Child Health Care, Journal of School Health, The American Journal of Orthopsychiatry, Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Mental Health and Social Justice, Journal of Intellectual Disabilities Research, and Journal of Applied School Psychology - to name a few.
