Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. develop a better understanding for if school psychologists feel prepared to respond to discrimination in schools.
  2. gain skills in building recommendations for supporting school psychologists in responding to discrimination in schools.
  3. gain a clearer picture on if school psychologists are being asked to respond to experiences of discrimination in schools.


This presentation will review the results of an ongoing project. The primary aim of this project is to document and describe school psychologists’ role in responding to discrimination in schools, and their level of preparedness in these responses. A mixture of qualitative and quantitative data analysis techniques are used to reach this goal.
