Indian School Psychology Association
In India, academic psychology is predominantly dominated by the Western concepts and principles. The psychology graduates are mostly getting training on educational and clinical psychology. School Psychology is a new area to study and conduct research based on International models. The competency requires both knowledge and skills in a particular domain. To provide a platform to Indian Psychologists/ School Educationists, a six member team of psychologists met under the guidance of the renowned psychologist Prof. B. Mukhopadhyay and evolved the Indian School Psychology Association in 2009 to promote school psychology in India and abroad.
