Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand the historical underpinnings of school psychology that were based in racist and discriminatory practices;
  2. generate ideas and review practical strategies for addressing the pressure that is placed on school psychologists when professional practice conflicts with local or state regulations; and
  3. develop their own approaches to managing ethical dilemmas that arise, given the changing state of local politics and school climate.


School psychologists address social justice issues in an atmosphere of challenging state and local regulations. This session discusses the historical perspective, ethical problem solving, and case examples to meet challenges. This session is sponsored by the Convention Committee.
