2023 Public Policy Institute (PPI)
Advocate as if Public Education Depends on It: Supporting Civil Rights for All Students
Since 2007, NASP has been offering a Public Policy Institute (PPI) focused on building the capacity of NASP members and state school psychology association leaders' advocacy skills. In 2021 and 2022, PPI was held virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are so excited that 2023's PPI will be fully in-person in Washington, DC for the first time since the pandemic began.
This year's PPI will focus on helping state leaders and other interested school psychologists to develop the advocacy skills, strategies, and state association system supports, to advocate for public education and support students' civil rights. It will offer approximately 14 hours of CPD credit with pre-recorded modules and in-person training sessions.
Through the use of content presentations, dialogue/discussion, interactive hands-on experiences, and collaborative group activities, participants will learn and be able to demonstrate the fundamental knowledge, skills, and strategies needed to develop and implement a grassroots advocacy campaign to support programs and policies that create equitable access to school mental health services.
