School psychologists -- Job satisfaction -- Iowa; School psychologists -- Iowa -- Attitudes;
School psychology faces retention issues due to a current and projected shortage of school psychologists and the large number of baby boomers getting ready to retire. Meeting this need becomes vital in order to prevent negative effects of the shortage from continuing. Research has supported a link between job satisfaction and retention in the school psychology research as well as in job satisfaction research in general. Much of the current literature on the job satisfaction of school psychologists, however, focuses only on the identification of correlates with job satisfaction and largely avoids asking practitioners how their job satisfaction can be increased. This study proposes to investigate how school psychologists' job satisfaction can be increased in Iowa.
