Florida Association of School Psychologists 

46th Annual Conference

It's that time of year again to enhance our school psychology toolboxes and network with colleagues from around the state. Escape your day-to-day routines by joining FASP at the World Golf Village Renaissance St. Augustine Resort November 6-9, 2019.  This fantastic resort will host the conference for the first time and has many amenities including discounted golf and spa services, a free shuttle to Old St. Augustine, close proximity to one of Florida’s most beautiful coasts, and local shopping. 

The theme for this year's annual conference is BETTER TOGETHER More than ever, school psychologists are part of a multidisciplinary team working collaboratively with other school-based professionals within the school setting.  School Psychologists have expertise in the areas of mental health, counseling, consultation, and evaluations which bring a unique perspective to any team.  Together, with other professionals in our schools and communities, we can provide much needed, comprehensive support to our students and their families, working with all children regardless of their differences, circumstances, or background.   

Building on the success of the 2018 annual conference, we will continue the luncheon event initiated last year.  On Wednesday, eat a catered lunch while you hear about FASP’s activities at the General Business Meeting preceding the keynote address, all included in your conference registration fee!

Kate and Andy Grosmaire, and Dr. Stephen E. Brock will present our keynote address. After suffering the unimaginable loss of their teenage daughter, Ann, in 2010, the Grosmaires have fostered national discussion of approaches to criminal justice that promote human dignity; they successfully advocated for restorative justice to shape the plea agreement for their daughter’s assailant.  Dr. Stephen Brock will present next on the role of  comprehensive mental health services within our schools and the role of the school psychologist specifically.
