Unterstützungsverein Schulpsychologie Steiermark

The “Unterstützungsverein Schulpsychologie Steiermark” represents an NGO, which aims to support all educational psychologists in Styria. The Unterstützungsverein Schulpsychologie Steiermark represents therefore the legal basis for special projects concerning the broad field of school-psychology. The association also provides support for psychologists cooperating with federal school-psychologists employed by “Bildungsdirektion für Steiernmark“.

The members consist mainly of school psychologists supporting students/pupils/teachers and parents within the school administration of Styria. Cooperations with other provinces and with federal institutions (BMBWF) exist in order to guarantee synergy effects of operative processes (training, round tables, expert exchange…).

Recent projects – supporting the strategic goals of “Bildungsdirektion für Steiermark” - focused on “Health promotion at schools“ 2005 – 2010. This project was financed by “Fonds Gesundes Österreich” and the government of Styria. Further projects focused on reading and writing support for children with difficulties were driven by “EASI-Institut” and financed by the government of Styria.
