School Psychology Awareness Week 2019

2019 School Psychology Awareness Week Poster

Find Your Focus!

School Psychology Awareness Week (SPAW) is November 11-15, 2019.  This year’s theme is “Find Your Focus,” which can have a variety of meanings such as paying attention, being able to see an idea more clearly, identifying an area of interest, or being persistent and determined in one’s effort. Focusing can help us set goals, identify action steps, communicate needs, and engage in discussions that help create the connections necessary for students to develop critical academic and social emotional skills.

This year’s theme, “Find Your Focus” is action oriented, flexible, and relevant to all age groups. Finding your focus can mean a variety of meanings from paying attention, to being able to see an idea more clearly, to identifying an area of interest, or to being persistent or determined in one’s effort. Focusing can help us set goals, identify action steps, communicate need, and engage in discussions to help create the connections necessary for students to develop critical academic and social emotional skills.

Additionally, school psychologists and other school staff may “find their focus” by honing in on their leadership in the counseling room, the classroom, the community, and beyond. School psychologists can find a focus to help improve school climate, advocate for systems-level change, or enhance specific areas of their practice.
