Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Podcast Series
Developed in collaboration with school psychology educators, practitioners, and graduate students, NASP’s new Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) podcast series explores a broad range of professional topics in school psychology from an EDI lens. Existing diversity and social justice resources primarily focus on professional practice in pre-K–12 settings. However, EDI issues are also relevant to school psychology graduate education and training, professional development, professional leadership, and advocacy.
Importantly, feedback to NASP’s EDI Implementation Taskforce and Social Justice, Multicultural Affairs, and Graduate Student Committees indicates that minoritized school psychologists and graduate students, especially individuals who identify as BIPOC, seek resources and professional development to address the unique challenges they experience in school psychology and in the workplace.
This EDI podcast series is part of NASP’s strategic goal to advance social justice. Its purpose is to help school psychologists navigate these important professional issues and understand the relevance of social justice to all aspects of school psychology.
This episode provides an introduction overview of the EDI podcast series and discusses the intergration of EDI work in different career stages. Also discussed is NASP's Antiracism Resolution featuring writing team cochairs Dave Shriberg, PhD, and Chavez Phelps, PhD, along with NASP President-Elect Celeste Malone, PhD, MS.
This episode discusses the role of school psychologists in creating welcoming, affirming, and inclusive school environments. Guest Amy Cannava, EdS, NCSP; explains related implications for school psychology practitioners, particularly as it pertains to the intersection of gender identity, sexual orientation, and disability.
Social Justice Lesson Plans
Two lesson plans were formulated by NASP's Social Justice Task Force and are intended to guide conversations and activities related to race and privilege. While each lesson plan is designed for the school context, they may be modified for use in other settings.
