Equitable Practices for Diverse Student Populations
Social Justice in School Psychology Practice: Examining the Impact of Diversity and Justice on Everyday Practice

Domain 8Equitable Practices for Diverse Student Populations

School psychologists have knowledge of individual differences, abilities, disabilities, and other diverse characteristics and the impact they have on development and learning. They also understand principles and research related to diversity in children, families, schools, and communities, including factors related to child development, religion, culture and cultural identity, race, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, socioeconomic status, and other variables. School psychologists implement evidence-based strategies to enhance services in both general and special education and address potential influences related to diversity.

These sessions are designed to cover material aligned to Domain 8 of the NASP Practice Model.


Important Session Information:

Presenter Dr. Laurie Klose

SESSION DESCRIPTION: This session will examine elements of social justice and school psychology. Participants will examine their own understanding of social justice and relate that to the daily practice of school psychology.  In addition, elements of systemic issues related to racism, privilege, disproportionality, and implicit bias will be examined.  Strategies for reducing the negative impact and promoting systems that are more just will be discussed. Be prepared to participate, learn something new- about yourself and the systems where you work- and take away tools to make your professional functioning more effective and more just.


  • Engage in activities to evaluate one’s personal development with regard to understanding social justice as a component of school psychology practice.
  • Understand the impact of systemic issues on students in traditionally minoritized groups.
  • Create an action plan to address systemic issues related to discriminatory practice and promote social justice in educational systems.
