CSUEB's Clinical Child/School Psychology (CCSP) Program is a nationally recognized training program that prepares professionals to make a difference in their communities. Founded in 1973, CSUEB's CCSP is the largest and earliest program in the Northern California Bay Area to receive accreditation from the National Association of School Psychologist (NASP). Program alumni graduate as dedicated School Psychologists who become leaders in culturally and linguistically diverse K-12 schools.

The goals of the concentration are to provide clinical training, instruction, field-based placements, and cohort learning opportunities to promote four levels of trainee development; 1) Foundation for Clinical Practice, 2) Professional Skills and Knowledge, 3) Demonstration of Competency, and 4) Professional Identity. Although each area is introduced at different points of the program, levels of development and knowledge-based content are continuously revisited and integrated into group and individual discussions and reflections. In addition, coursework continues to build as trainees demonstrate competence in service delivery.

The CCSP promotes professional excellence, community involvement, and collaboration between School Psychologists and other professionals in order to create learning communities where K-12 students are engaged as learners, passionate about what they do, and empowered as people.
