Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. to use DEP model of school psychology supervision to respond to NASP Call to Action to End Racism and Violence Against People of Color.
  2. to prompt structured supervisor–supervisee dialogue that supports the development of cultural humility in field-based placements.
  3. to frame school psychologist identity development at the practicum level around the question of what does it mean to be school psychologists doing antiracist work.


Come learn how the DEP model of supervision is being used to support development of cultural humility in school psychology practicum students. Structured assignments bridging the gap from university classroom to field to create intentional spaces for critical conversations will be shared. Discuss the successes and challenges of this pilot project exploring the impact of centering school psychologist identity development around the question of what does it mean to be school psychologists doing antiracist work.
