Antiracist Psychological Assessment Workshop Will Be Hosted Online by Fordham GSE’s Hagin School Consultation Center


Join us Friday, January 29 at 3:30 p.m. on a Zoom led by GSE Assistant Professor Alea R. Holman, Ph.D., and discover ways to incorporate antiracist practices throughout the psychological assessment process. You will also have the opportunity to listen to suggestions for how to teach and promote such practices in school psychology training programs.

An antiracist school psychology practice involves a constant series of choices oriented toward equity at the individual, interpersonal, and institutional levels. Being antiracist requires assessors to reflect on their own biases and to acknowledge how the profession upholds white supremacy. Learn how moving toward antiracist practices is crucial for many reasons, including the racist history of psychological assessment and the ways that people of color have been harmed by assessment processes and outcomes. This program will offer both a historical perspective on the detrimental effects of psychological assessment and frame the need for intentional efforts toward antiracist assessment practices among assessors and educators.
