When:

Event Description:

The practice of school psychology involves many potential ethical conflicts. One of the most commonly reported ethically challenging situations reported by school psychologists consists of administrative pressure to engage in behavior that violates ethical mandates. This webinar will summarize the research to date related to administrative pressure to practice unethically, including how it manifests in schools, its underlying causes, and its impact on the occupational health of school psychologists. Strategies will be presented for resolving these ethical tensions in a manner that preserves one’s role as student advocate.
