SY030: Social Justice Theory into Practice: Strategies for School Psychologists

Tuesday, February 18, 2014 2:30 PM–5:50 PM


NASP’s (2010b) Principles for Professional Ethics stated school psychologists assume “a proactive role in identifying social injustices that affect children and schools” and “strive to reform systems-level patterns of injustice” (p. 11-12). This symposium illustrates four approaches to reforming patterns of injustice and promoting social justice. Attendees will gain a nuanced understanding of how social justice theory guides school psychology practice and tools for applying social justice theory to their practice.
