    Please join us for a chance to connect and engage with other School Psychologists across the state for some self-guided Professional Development as we read and discuss the contents of the book "School Psychologist as Counselor: A Practitioner's Handbook." This book is available for purchase on the NASP Website. It was voted as the #1 choice to kick off our NSPA Book Club Series.


    Book Club will begin on Monday, February 4, 2019. The facilitator, Molly Kuhl, will email participants every 2 weeks with the discussion questions (2 chapters at a time) and open up a discussion forum on the NSPA Website to give participants a chance to engage, ask questions and share insights with one another. The Book Study will conclude on April 22, 2019 after 12 weeks (6 discussion forums will be completed in that time).


    Every time a participant engages on the forum, their name will be entered into a drawing for prizes, which include:

    -A Free NSPA Membership

    -A Free Copy of our next NSPA Book Club Title (TBD)

    -New NSPA Swag featuring our new NSPA Logo (pens, post it notes, campfire mug, stress balls)


    The drawings will be held at the conclusion of book club.


    Please see below for a summary of the book:

    Most school psychologists agree that counseling teachers, administrators, and students is an important part of their job.

    It often happens subtly. As part of an Individual Educational Program (IEP). Through group and individual therapy. In social skills training.  

    School Psychologist as Counselor guides you through your journey. Inside, discover actionable approaches to strengthen the way you serve students every day.

    Take your role to the next level by learning about:  

    • Cognitive-behavioral approaches to counseling
    • Play-based and sandtray approaches to counseling
    • Choice theory and reality theory
    • Crisis intervention, grief, and loss
    • Family system issues
    • Substance abuse, delinquency, and incarcerated youth

    You have the chance to impact students holistically, no matter what your role. Let this book help you upgrade your toolkit.
