The assessment of school psychologists' satisfaction with various aspects of their job may enhance the understanding of the problems presently faced by the profession in Israel. The analysis of the results of two surveys conducted in Israel on school psychologists and teacher counsellors, and the comparison between their satisfaction with extrinsic and intrinsic factors in their work, revealed that, in comparison to teacher counsellors, school psychologists were less satisfied with the extrinsic factors, such as salary, status and advancement opportunities. The two groups expressed similar degrees of satisfaction with the intrinsic factors. However, school psychologists expressed a much greater general satisfaction with their profession than teacher counsellors. The implications are discussed.
