The school psychologists’ roles are to be active participants and coworker in the student health service team, working to promote student health in the Learning environment. The preparation of school psychologists, licensing, and specialists training in

educational psychology are described. Sweden’s school psychological services need further expansion at the undergraduate (first cycle) and master’s (second cycle) level university courses as well as improved possibilities for professional development and training.
