The Four Pillars of a Thriving School Psychologist

October 28th, 2021, 9am-noon

Presented by Dr. Rebecca Bransetter

This is a virtual event. All registrants receive an invitation to Dr. Brensetter's live presentation on October 28th.  

Workshop Description

Want practical strategies to work smarter (not harder!) to meet assessment deadlines using  organizational and technology hacks? Want to learn real-time strategies you can use during the  school day to reduce stress and increase enjoyment of the job? Join Dr. Rebecca Branstetter, author of The School Psychologist’s Survival Guide, for this hands-on half-day workshop to learn  the Four Pillars of a Thriving School Psychologist.  

If you’re a newer school psychologist, you can learn strategies from the get-go, to instill positive  work practices before you ever learn to do things any other way! If you’ve been at this a while, you can learn new and innovative ways to use your full skillset, do more of what you love to do,  and free up your time from report writing for passion projects.  

You’ll learn the 4 most common burnout traps for school psychologists, and how to get out of  them or avoid them altogether. This will be an active workshop where you will walk away with a  personalized 4 Pillars action plan, based on the research on productivity, MTSS, and the science  of happiness that you can take with you to keep organized and engaged all year long.

This presentation will run from 9am-noon on October 28th, 2021. Participants will have two 15 minute breaks. The virtual link will be activated approximately 15 minutes before the event begins. A link to download a free copy of Dr. Bransetter's book will be provided to registrants.
