BECOMING A SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGIST- Feat. Mawule Sevon

If you want to be a school psychologist or have ever wondered what a school psychologist does, then this episode is for you!  School psychologists are collaborators, advocates, leaders, and team players!  They are in charge of assessing school aged children and identifying their needs for success in school.  They work with other clinicians like Occupational and Speech therapists as well as mental health therapists and school counselors!  In this episode we talk diagnosis, IEP's, and the many factors influencing student struggles and successes.

How Being a Person of Color in Predominantly White Institutions Can Make You … um…ALL THE THINGS

In this candid conversation with three other people of color, we detail some of our personal experiences in White America.  Americanization, acculturation, and assimilation can cause emotional and mental struggles.  In this episode we also tackle: microaggressions, what Latinxs think of the US Border Patrol, being Latinx in higher education, and rampant systemic oppression (even in a Border City).
