Opportunity! Community Chat from Dakota Family Services: The Power of Social Connections Humans are social in nature. Positive social connections and relationships affect our physical, mental, and emotional health. In this online Community Chat, Psychiatrist Dr. Wayne Martinsen and Psychologist Dr. Megan Spencer will discuss the health impact of relationships and social interactions characterized by shared connectedness, support, encouragement, and positive emotions. Research indicates that Americans are experiencing an increase in loneliness and a decrease in social connections, which makes us more vulnerable to anxiety, depression, antisocial behavior, and even suicidal behaviors. Further, a lack of social connectedness predicts susceptibility to disease and death beyond traditional risk factors such as smoking, blood pressure, and physical activity! Dr. Martinsen and Dr. Spencer will share some ideas for increasing your social connections—for yourself and your children. Time Jan 20, 2023 12:15 PM in Central Time (US and Canada) Register here: https://dakotaranch.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_NB9e9oBTTPqf9QGy9qdxiQ

Celebrating- National Special Education Day, December 2nd! On this day we celebrate the signing of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act into law in 1975 (IDEA). IDEA granted access to children with special needs to free and quality public education. IDEA established the rights of children with disabilities, laid the groundwork for the team approach, so educators and families working together ensure services and resources available for support. Special Education Day started in 2005 — on IDEA’s 30th anniversary.

Sending out a shout of appreciation for our school psychologists! This week, we celebrate National School Psychology Awareness Week (Nov. 7th- 11th). Thank you for all you do to support students and all the important work to help students thrive. The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) sponsors this national event. NASP represents and supports the profession of school psychology by advancing effective practices to improve students' learning, behavior and mental health, and by maintaining essential standards for ethics and practice. This year's theme, "Together We Shine" is derived from how we see hope after several challenging years. We have all faced difficulties created by the pandemic, social injustice and inequity, economic stress, and challenges to mental and physical health.
NPSEU hosted an extended day for professional development opportunities for educators.
