We publish a semi-annual, peer-refereed journal, Trainers’ Forum, which features articles relevant to the preparation of school psychologists. The journal is designed for a readership of academics who shape the field of school psychology. Libraries and publishers can purchase subscriptions to Trainers’ Forum.

Past Issues are embargoed for one to two years and are made available only in print to TSP members. To access older archived issues, please visit the Trainers’ Forum Archives.

The Trainers Forum invites articles concerned with research and program applications related to the training of school psychologists. Pertinent areas include, but are not limited to, assessment and intervention practice. The Trainers Forum accepts articles that are both data driven and conceptual, but consistent with best practices in the training of school psychologists.
