The pandemic put mental health issues in the forefront of the American consciousness, and students, teachers, and staff will continue to feel the effects of COVID-19 when they return to school this fall. Their job will not be easy.
A FREE daylong virtual event, PARtalks brings together authors, subject matter experts, and thought leaders to equip school professionals with the information they need to do what they do best — help students.
Designed for a target audience of school psychologists, psychologists, counselors, and social workers, PARtalks features introductory topics designed specifically for online presentation.
Participants wishing to receive NASP continuing professional development credit must attend the entire live webinar and complete the postwebinar evaluation form. PAR is approved by the National Association of School Psychologists to provide continuing education for psychologists. PAR maintains responsibility for the program and its content. PAR’s NASP APS Provider Number is 1051.
The event kicks off with a welcome by PAR CEO Kristin Greco at 10 a.m. ET followed by the keynote address “Healing Together: Mental Health, Trauma, and Resilience in the Wake of a Global Pandemic,” presented by Kirby Wycoff, PsyD, NCSP, at 10:15 a.m. ET.
