RESOURCES FOR COVID-19


    Statements

      • School Psych Guest Speakers and Online Resources –You can enter and find potential guest speakers and a variety of resources to support online instruction. The online resources pertain both to making the transition to online only and targeted resources to replace in-person lecture and activities in specific courses.*

      • COVID-19 Critical Issues for School Psychology Programs Q&A – This word document is formatted for crowdsourced Q&A from the Critical Issues sheet of the Google sheet CDSPP circulated last week. Right now, there are many more questions than answers, but we hope that if we band together, we can help each other in supporting our programs and communities in this difficult time*
      • Alternative Practice Activities aligned with NASP Domains: This document has been created by Denver Public Services School Psychologist Graduate Student Coordinator, Joanna Barker, in partnership with Jennifer Gray, Field Based Supervisor, and our local Universities: University of Colorado Denver and Denver University. We have decided to share this document to any Graduate Student or University who would like access to support and promote ongoing learning and experiences for our professionals in training. For questions, suggestions, edits or additions email: Joanna_Barker@dpsk12.org


        Tele-Psychological Supports

          • FREE Telehealth two-day training with CEU from PESI:  PESI is offering their 2 Day telehealth training for free with the Promo Code: TELEFREE. This webinar includes the training, a quiz, and CEU certificate (as desired). Please note that the training will appear to be at normal price when you register ($439) until you reach the final registration page, where you are permitted to enter the "discount" or promo code.
          Technology Supports
                • Powerpoint Narration Support: PowerPoint gives the option to add narration to each slide individually. PowerPoint will include a video of the person recording in the lower right corner of each relevant slide (or that camera option can be turned off if only audio is wanted). Then you can turn the PowerPoint into a slide show to be published as a PowerPoint or as a video. This may help some of our faculty as we transition to an online classroom. If they plan to use PowerPoint for the web they will need to use transitions that are supported for that purpose (Cut, Fade, Push, Wipe, Split, Random Bars, Shape, Morph)

                      President's Welcome!

                      It is an honor to serve as the Trainers of School Psychologists (TSP) president this year. We have the awesome responsibility and privilege of training the next generation of school psychologists and/or school psychology trainers. This is a pivotal time to be doing this work! As school psychology trainers, without a doubt, we face many challenges every day. Whether we are early, middle or late career professionals, just a few of the challenges we face are the shortage of both school psychology practitioners and trainers, the dearth of mental health supports across the country, and long-standing issues of inequity and bias (e.g., by race/ethnicity, poverty, LGBTQ+ status) in children accessing them. These challenges are coupled with the many demands on our time that involve research, service and teaching in universities across the nation.

                       

                      However, with these many challenges, I see remarkable working being done in the field. So many of our colleagues are rolling up their sleeves to address these big picture issues for the field and on behalf of our graduate students and school-aged children and adolescents. The compassion, dedication and remarkable talent and work of school psychology trainers, graduate students and school psychologists that work tirelessly in the field continually strike me. This work happens in school psychology graduate training programs, schools and clinical settings across the United States in rural, urban/suburban contexts and in international settings.

                       

                      On a small and large scale, practicing school psychologists and those that prepare them are looked to as leaders in schools, districts, universities, and in regional, state, national and international contexts. There couldn’t be a more critical time for school psychology trainers to support and learn from one another. Trainers of School Psychologists (TSP) is committed as an organization to facilitate this important work through our mission and vision. It is TSP’s hope that we can help you in your work through resources, ongoing dialogue, and important conversations. I look forward to seeing you at our TSP 2020 meeting in Baltimore, MD. Thank you for all that you do to support the training of our future school psychologists!

                       

                      Warmest wishes,
