Mentors, Tuition Discounts, Hotel Rooms and More: CASP Membership Benefits Grow
CASP is continuing to increase the benefits of membership. This year, members can be matched to a mentor. If you have a new position, are coming back into the profession, or are a newly minted school psychologist, it’s great to have someone with which to discuss issues and challenges. Here are other new benefits for CASP members:
Don’t miss discounted rates for CASP Convention 2016, to be held at the Hyatt Regency, Newport Beach on Oct. 27-29.

Book your hotel room, view convention workshop and event descriptions and register at event.casponline.org today!

Experiencing or viewing a violent fire, flood, storm, or earthquake is frightening and can be especially traumatic for youth. The devastation to one’s familiar environment can be stressful and cause long-lasting coping challenges for many.

NASP has put together a descriptive list of ways that schools can comfort children during a natural disaster. Although it does not specifically relate to the devastating fires in California, the guidance in the article could help students and school staff during this stressful time.
