NASP, the National Association of School Psychologists, has released the following statement regarding the violence this past week. These are trying times for everyone, particularly those people living in the communities directly affected by such violence. While my heart is heavy, I am proud to be a school psychologist and serve as your president at time when the country and the children, families and schools we serve need our help more than ever.
We will be developing additional resources to help engage children and youth in productive discussions and positive actions in the days ahead.
