New Benefits for CASP Members

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:

  • Alliant International University is offering CASP members a chance to further their education with a 10% tuition reduction and an application fee waiver when they enroll as a full-time student in one of Alliant’s programs, including its online PsyD in Educational Psychology.
  • HotelStorm offers CASP members savings of 10-55% on hotel rooms throughout the world. This online discount hotel service may have discounts that the others do not.
  • CASP’s new, easy-to-use online database allows members to access their membership pages and update their information. Additional elements will be added soon, such as member chat rooms, additional directories and more.

Visit the Members Area and sign in to view more information about these benefits. To sign up for CASP membership see see the Membership Page.

Helping Children Cope After an Environmental Disaster

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.

Schools and school psychologists can play significant roles in the recovery process by providing a stable and familiar environment for the children via an atmosphere that keeps them reassured and helps return them to their normal routines.

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.
