Social Justice in School Psychology: Why and For Whom
This workshop is designed to provide a cohesive overview of the intersection between history, politics, and psychology. In a review of key historical events ranging from the colonization of America to the COVID-19 pandemic, racism and the value of individual economic gain over collective well-being will be highlighted. The need for eliminating white supremacy and for diversifying graduate training programs and other professional spaces will be addressed.

The Microintervention Workshop
The Microintervention Workshop aims to increase self-reflection, awareness and critical consciousness. Participants will learn to identify microaggressions and active coping response strategies that can be used to disarm, dismantle, and effectively defend against daily experiences of microaggressions. The workshop emphasizes healing and self-worth and is built on the principles of the Microintervention taxonomy and framework that was published by Sue, Alsaidi et al., 2019 in the American Psychologist. The training was developed by Sarah Alsaidi for her dissertation research, in which she implemented the training at three different participating sites, and evaluated its efficacy through a pre and post longitudinal design.
Thanks to a co-sponsorship with the College of Psychology at Nova Southeastern University, NASP Continuing Professional Development and Continuing Education Credits will be available for qualified TSP programming.
