Unlock Potential. Find Your Password!
National Association of School Psychologist Statement
During the week of November 12-16, 2018, schools throughout North America will celebrate National School Psychology Awareness Week to highlight the important work school psychologists and other educators do to help all students thrive.
Each year, the National Association of School Psychologists designates a theme for School Psychology Awareness Week. This year’s theme is “Unlock Potential. Find Your Password!” A password is a personal key for unlocking any number of areas of potential in our lives. Our goal is to connect with how modern youth and adults unlock things (e.g., gaming levels, phones, devices, codes) and to highlight how thinking about specific skills, assets, or characteristics as “passwords” can lead to positive growth. School psychologists are particularly skilled at assisting students and staff in unlocking the resources, proactive and preventive skills, and positive connections necessary to unlock one’s full potential to thrive in school and life. A password can help us set goals, identify action steps, communicate needs, and engage in discussions to help create the connections necessary for students to develop critical academic and social emotional skills.
