The D16 Initiatives Committee (Drs. García-Vázquez, Song, Arora, Raines, Ogg, and Reinhardt) invites you to the inaugural School Psychology Anti-Racism UNconference July 30-31, 2021.
An UNconference is a participant-driven gathering that seeks to dismantle hierarchical structures and co-create knowledge and resources. We are seeking to uproot school psychological practices that perpetuate systems of racism and oppression. UNconferences are active – everyone who attends participates and potentially even facilitates some of the discussions.
Due to technology capacity, we are only able to host 150 participants. Should more than 150 people register, a lottery will be held and registered participants will be notified around July 5, 2021. A randomized waitlist will be created in the event a registered participant is unable to attend.
Experts in the field conduct a mid-year report card to explore the impacts of long-distance learning while providing insights into how to help support practitioners, parents, and caretakers in order to nurture a child’s social and mental health.
Dr. Prerna Arora from the School Psychology program at Teachers College, Columbia University presented her research on immigrant youth and school mental health for The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Project's Brown Bag Lecture Series.
