On criteria of professional competence of a school psychologist

The paper focuses on criteria of professional competence of practical psychologists employed in education. These issues were discussed at the conference de-voted to the 5-th anniversary of the contest "Psychologist of the year (Moscow)". Its participants expressed their own understanding of the professional competence of a practical psychologist, compared results of the assessment of practical psychologists in the contest and in attestation. The author, who is a psychologist at one of Moscow schools, not only reviews the main issues raised at the conference, but also explains his own views on what professional qualities one must possess in order to be a successful school psychologist.
