March 19, 2021 Keynote Address: Frank Worrell
Social Justice in School Psychology: Why and For Whom
Dr. Worrell will share thoughts about social justice and suggest that our actions in support of social justice need to be broader in focus and longer-term. Social justice needs to move beyond universities and school psychology syllabi into schools and classrooms serving low-income students and students of color whose achievement is below where it should be.

Worrell, Ph.D., is a Professor of School Psychology in the Graduate School of Education and an Affiliate Professor in the Social and Personality Area in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. His areas of expertise include talent development/gifted education, at-risk youth, cultural identities, scale development/validation, time perspective, and the translation of psychological research findings into practice. Dr. Worrell is a Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science, the American Educational Research Association, and five divisions of the American Psychological Association, and a former Editor of Review of Educational Research.

March 26, 2021 Keynote Address: Sarah Alsaidi
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.
Sarah Alsaidi earns her PhD in Counseling Psychology from Teachers College, Columbia University in 2021. Her research focuses on identity, microaggressions and microintervention response strategies for people of color and allies. Sarah utilizes an intersectional, feminist and social justice approach that integrates her clinical background and research. She is driven by her desire to live by these principles and values and believes in the sharing of power, self-disclosures, and active interventions. Sarah has several years of experience facilitating workshops and trainings in educational and organizational settings. She has played an integral role in the development of mental health awareness campaigns and programming in the community, initiatives centering the experiences of women of color and access to education, as well as teaching anti-bias microintervention strategies in education, hospital and social service settings.
Continuing Education will be provided for LIVE attendance for many presentations.
