The podcast aims to provide a resource for school psychologists to learn about evidence-based practices from a behavioral perspective, with a focus on the implementation of all aspects of the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) practice model.

Podcast hosts include the following CES team members: Director Lisa Thomas, Ph.D., NCSP; Assistant Director Laura Rutherford, Ph.D., NCSP, BCBA; and Consulting and Research Psychologists Rachel Eisenberg, Ph.D., NCSP, and Janna Sanders, Ph.D., BCBA.

The CES is part of Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health, one of the nation’s oldest and largest nonprofit providers of behavioral healthcare.

“This podcast allows us to highlight the important work school psychologists perform in schools and other practice settings across the country – every day,” said Dr. Eisenberg. “We titled our podcast, ‘Not Your Average School Psychologist’ because episodes will focus on ways in which professionals in the field are breaking down the barriers of a traditional role and championing best practices, regardless of their setting. Currently, there is a national shortage of school psychologists. We hope this podcast not only provides valuable information for practicing school psychologists, but also raises awareness about the critical role school psychologists serve in helping students thrive.”
