Maine Association of School Psychologists Fall Workshop
Making Schools a Site of Healing Workshop
Presented By: Celeste Malone, PhD MS; NASP President 2022-23
In person at the Harraseeket Inn
Celeste Malone, PhD, MS, President of NASP will be presenting on Making Schools a Site of Healing. Ample evidence indicates that minoritized students experience oppression and discrimination in schools. On an interpersonal level, minoritized students experience discrimination in the form of
microaggressions and bias-based bullying. Structural oppression emerges as restricted access to educational opportunities and differential treatment by school staff. The ongoing exposure and re-exposure to oppression impact negatively students' mental and physical health leading to traumatic stress. As mental health professionals, school psychologists teach minoritized students coping skills to help them survive invalidating school environments; however, our goal should be to create environments that allow all students to thrive. This requires school psychologists to embrace healing centered approaches that affirm students' identities, empower students to be agents in restoring their own well-being, and correct the unjust practices which marginalize some students.
This is a full day presentation. Please note, the Annual Meeting will occur before lunch.
