NASP is coordinating a broad awareness campaign known as the Exposure Project. NASP members can see information here. The goal is to have school psychologists visit their local high school or college/university and discuss our field. The exposure project provides materials, including potential slide presentations, handouts, and other materials. You can also search for #naspexposureproject.
If you are a NHASP member and interested in giving a presentation at your local college/university during school psychology awareness week please contact us!
School Psychology Awareness Week 2017 Resources
Power Up, Be A Positive Charge!
School Psychology Awareness Week (SPAW) 2017 is November 13-17. The NASP Presidential Theme is Power Up, Be A Positive Charge!. Many resources are available on the NASP 2017 SPAW webpage.
NHASP provides links to SPAW resources each year. Resources from previous years are below. Power Up inspired coloring pages are available this year.
Try this new Positive Charge activity. Fill up a box with treats and leave it for someone. Include a note that says: "You've been caught...Being a Positive Charge! Thank you for all that you do. Challenge: Refill the box with a treat and share this with someone who has been a positive charge." Included here is a template to make these notes (to fit a standard business card) as well as a label for the front of the box.
Make your own magnets and share them to promote SPAW. Here are two different examples that can be easily printed on a standard business card sheet and stuck to a magnet. You can purchase magnets that fit business cards.
Focus: Building connections between students and school communities that enhance their skills, improve their outlook, and set them up to thrive in everything they do.
The theme for 2015 School Psychology Awareness Week is Connect the Dots and THRIVE! NASP’s goal is to help connect students to the academic and social-emotional skills they need to promote personal achievement, growth, and resilience, as well as a sense of belonging and wellbeing. Resources and messaging can be adapted to students and adults, different age groups, and multiple contexts. Please visit the NASP website for more information and ideas.
For your convenience, here are a few of the resources from NASP:
