NASP and SCASP co-hosted a webinar on Wednesday,
October 14th to discuss S.C. flood crisis response from the perspective of school mental health professionals. The webinar was led by NASP's School Safety and Crisis Response Chairperson, Cindy Dickinson, with support from Susan Beck, our NASP delegate, and Lisa Lipscomb, our SCASP President. For those of you who were unable to attend the webinar live, the PowerPoint presentation from the webinar is available for download for members and nonmembers at: /resources/Documents/South%20Carolina%20Floods%2010-14-15%20Final.pdf. The webinar itself was recorded and will be available at our website in the future. Thank you to all who participated!
Additionally, the NASP Community for South Carolina is now live! NASP has opened up this community for any school psychologist for whom they had an address on file as being from South Carolina. Please feel free to use this as a resource for questioning, answering, and sharing your thoughts, concerns, and needs regarding the recent flood.
To participate in the NASP Community, you do not have to be a NASP (or SCASP) member. However, you must have an account with NASP. To create an account, you would go to the NASP website (www.nasponline.org), and click Create Account in the top right-hand corner of the screen. Once you have an account, you may access the South Carolina Community by choosing the Communities option toward the bottom left of the screen. Then, scroll down to find the Community labeled South Carolina.
Lastly, we have had some Flood Recovery handouts translated to Spanish, and added another English-language resource for you to share here!
