Send BSU Graduate Students to Japan!
We Need Your Support....
We are the 13th cohort of the School Psychology program at Bowie State University. We have conducted research on the relationship between multicultural competency, burn out, and implicit biases among in-service school psychologists. For the past month, we have presented our findings at various conferences, including the 2018 Maryland School Psychology Association Conference and several research symposiums at Bowie State.
Most recently, we were accepted to present our research at the International School Psychology Association Summer Conference in Tokyo, Japan from July 25-28, 2018. This conference is centered around promoting resiliency toward lifelong happiness, as well as training school psychologists to become effective practitioners, with an emphasis on how children, teachers, and other professionals can recover from challenges stemming from natural disasters and personal issues.
As future practitioners, this opportunity will allow us to expand our understanding of diverse cultures and perspectives within our field of study. Presenting our research will also assist in the promotion of mental health and resiliency across the student body at Bowie State University and foster relationships with professionals across the world.
Through support and collaborative efforts between the Graduate Student Association and BSU Office of Research and Sponsored Projects, our hotel and conference registration fees are covered. We invite you to help us raise $20,800, which will cover our airfare expenses to Tokyo, Japan. We thank you in advance for your support.
