2. Consultant history
A former practitioner, I am the lead editor of School Psychology and Social Justice: Conceptual Foundations and Tools for Practice (Shriberg, Song, Miranda, and Radliff, 2013), which is published by Routledge. I have been actively involved in social justice issues in school psychology for the past ten years. I also am a founder and first chairperson of NASP’s Social Justice Interest Group, as well as the lead author of the “Supporting Children Within a Social Justice Framework” module in the International School Psychology Curriculum developed by the Children’s Rights and Social Justice workgroup in Division 16 of APA. I have authored or edited dozens of articles and book chapters related to school psychology and social justice and I present regularly on this topic, including a chapter on social justice advocacy in the most recent edition of Best Practices in School Psychology: Foundations.
I am always looking for ways both to support others and to learn and to grow myself. While I live and work in the US and am happy to provide consultation to those based in the US, I am particularly interested in discussing and supporting the enactment of social justice principles outside of the US. While I believe heavily in culturally responsive practice and adapting one’s work to fit the appropriate local culture, I also believe that social justice has the potential to be a unifying force and framework for school psychologists throughout the world.
