Having been recently adopted as a strategic goal of the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP), this session will discuss the organization's commitment to social justice in all aspects of the profession, including research, practice, teaching, advocacy, and policy. Using NASP resources, this session will provide practical suggestions for embedding a social justice paradigm into psychological services for students, families, schools, and communities. NASP resources to support professional learning about social justice will be highlighted.
1. Participants will be able to describe what social justice is and why it is meaningful to the equitable practice of school psychology.
2. Participants will be able to describe the social justice implications related to various areas of school psychology practice (e.g., prevention, intervention, counseling, and assessment).
3. Participants will learn how to infuse social justice principles into school and systems wide policy decisions to meet the needs of marginalized groups.
