National School Psychology Week | November 7-11, 2022


During the week of November 7-11, 2022, schools throughout the country will celebrate National School Psychology Week (NSPW) to highlight the important work school psychologists do to help students thrive.

After several challenging years, we have all (students, educators, families, and school psychologists) faced some difficulties created by the pandemic, social injustice and inequity, economic stress, and challenges to mental and physical health. For some, it has been a time of real darkness, and finding light is critical to building resilience and hope. This year's NSPW theme highlights the importance of the collective nature of recovering after adversity. 
 
Together we shine brightly, and each of our lights is only more brightly illuminating when put together with the lights of those around us. Though each student and adult in school has their individual ways of shining their strengths and skills of resilience, school psychologists are uniquely trained to support the systems and structures that make it more possible for all stakeholders to shine more brilliantly together. 
 
This year's theme and activities move us beyond thinking of recovering and healing as singular or individual acts and instead help us to think about what kinds of activities and acts could support a community to thrive. There is much that school psychology can offer to promote connection and health within communities under stress, because together we shine.  
This week and every week, school psychologists promote positive change in all areas of leadership-in the counseling room, the classroom, the community, and beyond. School psychologists focus on improving school climate; identifying systems-level change; advocating for equity, inclusion, and social justice; and advancing specific areas of the NASP Practice Model.

 
If you have not already, please become familiar with the School Psychologist in your building.
