Special Issue Call for Papers

Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to solicit contributions for a special issue of Research and Practice in the Schools, the official journal of the Texas Association of School Psychologists (TASP). Under the guest editorship of Julia Englund Strait, PhD, Kirby Wycoff, PsyD, and Aaron Gubi, PhD, we invite submissions for a special issue focusing on Trauma-Informed School Psychology Practices.

Submissions should focus on trauma-informed strategies, approaches, and practices that are supported by or promising in terms of research evidence and psychological theory for use in the schools. Submissions may include empirical data analyses, systematic reviews, or meta-analyses of available evidence supporting trauma-informed practices, as well as reports describing the piloting or implementation of trauma-related programs, instruments, or models in real school settings. We especially encourage submissions from practitioners, early career scholars, and graduate students who can offer overviews of what is actually being done in their school settings, and the evidence base or theory behind it. We also encourage submissions on a range of school psychology activities and across all MTSS tiers, from training teachers and staff to working with individual students referred for evaluation and/or targeted, intensive treatment.

Please see the attachment for additional information about submitting a manuscript for consideration. We appreciate your sharing this call for papers with colleagues and/or students who might be interested in submitting a manuscript.

Additional information about Research and Practice in the Schools, and the first five issues of the journal, can be accessed on the TASP website.
