Selected Relevant NASP Domains:

 

 

Domain 4: Mental and Behavioral Health Services and Interventions

 

School psychologists recognize risk and protective factors and use data and assessment to

facilitate the design and delivery of curricula and interventions to help students develop

effective social–emotional skills, such as self-regulation, self-monitoring, self-advocacy,

planning/organization, empathy, positive coping strategies, interpersonal skills, and healthy

decision making.

 

Domain 6: Services to Promote Safe and Supportive Schools

 

School psychologists contribute to safe and supportive school environments by recognizing and

addressing risk and protective factors that are vital to understanding and addressing systemic

problems such as school failure, student disengagement, chronic absenteeism, school dropout,

bullying, substance abuse, youth suicide and self-harm, and school violence. They take steps to

promote prevention strategies and the development of protective factors that build resiliency.
