School Psychology Awareness Week 2012

November 12-16, 2012

School psychologists help students discover, share, and celebrate their strengths during

National School Psychology Awareness Week – November 12-16, 2012

The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) has designated November 12-16, 2012, as National School Psychology Awareness Week.  This year’s theme, “Know Your Own Strengths. Discover Them. Share Them. Celebrate Them.” helps our students to discover and celebrate their individual strengths. Whether strengths are academic, athletic, or social/emotional, they serve to bolster an individual’s resilience in the face of challenges.

School psychologists work with parents and educators to ensure that every child has the mental health and learning support that he or she needs to succeed in school and life. Additionally, school psychologists promote wellness and resilience in students by reinforcing problem solving, positive communication, and social skills. The training and expertise a school psychologist holds is important in improving resilience and emotional awareness. This leads students to be more engaged, academically successful, and self-confident. These skills will serve students well throughout their academic careers and in their transitions to adult life.
