Social Justice Task Force Resources
WSASP has identified and compiled these resources through the work of school psychologists across the state of Washington. These come from a variety of sources and are intended to help schools and families engage in constructive dialogue about social justice issues in the hopes that we can work together to shift the conversation from hate and violence toward understanding and respect. We will be adding to these resources over time.

Description: School psychologists can contribute to the reduction of this ongoing phenomenon of disproportionality by ensuring that their own practices are sound. Given the increasing diversity of our nation’s schools, it is inevitable that practitioners will encounter students and families with backgrounds and experiences drastically different from their own. As such, the cultivation of knowledge, skills, and dispositions conducive to effectively serving diverse populations is essential to ensuring that our professional practices remain relevant and beneficial to the communities we serve.
