Don’t Be Scared… Be Prepared. Don’t just Survive…Thrive! Practical Strategies for New School Psychologists.

2.5 hours running time

This webinar is not eligible for CEUs.
Entering the field of School Psychology can seem daunting. You have learned theory from graduate school, and practical application from your field experiences, but how do you put it all together as a fully-fledged School Psychologist? Through interactive participant discussion with two veteran school psychologists, this workshop will help participants gain an understanding of essential skills needed by new or early-career school psychologists. Participants will learn strategies, based on years of successful practice and specific NASP Ethical Principles that can help school psychologists thrive in their schools. Discussion will focus on why these strategies are important and how the school psychologist can model and live each strategy. In addition, participants will leave with access to a treasure trove of organizational tools and resources, as well as our recommended reading list for first year school psychologists.
