Dr. Regina Kaishian
I am a passionate, life-long learner who is dedicated to improving the lives of children. I am an experienced school psychologist who has developed a repertoire of skills aimed at helping all children reach their full potential. From conducting evaluations to identify need from a strength-based perspective, to supporting the development of social-emotional and behavioral skills, to actively engaging in school-wide interventions and learning from a systems perspective, my focus is always on what is best for children. I enjoy every aspect of my job, whether I am engaging with my talented colleagues to develop customized strategies or woking collaboratively with familes to address the needs of the whole child. As an adjunct professor and researcher, I am continuously in engaging in learning and advocacy in the field of school psychology and educational leadership, while also furthering my ability to understand the experiences of others and to celebrate diversity and differences.
Mrs. Kaishian is a certified school psychologist who has been working at Primrose Elementary School since 2011. She is also an adjunct professor at Mercy College in the graduate program.
A school psychologist is a professional with specialized training in psychology and education. School psychologists use their training and skill to work with parents, teachers, and other mental health professionals to ensure that every child learns in a safe, healthy, and supportive environment.
School psychologists understand child development, school systems, and effective teaching, and are prepared to help alleviate difficulties that may otherwise impede successful learning.All children and adolescents face problems from time to time. They may, for example: have fears about starting school, be upset about family events such as divorce or death, feel depressed, lack self-discipline, lack social skills, experiment with drugs or alcohol, think about suicide, lack study skills, worry about sexuality, have trouble with homework and organization, or consider dropping out of school.
School psychologists are there to help children, parents, teachers, and the community understand and solve these and many other problems. School psychologists know that by dealing with problems early on, they can help prevent further difficulties. They can be trusted to deal in confidence with sensitive personal and family matters. Because school psychologists understand how schools work and how children learn, they are able to provide easily accessible, cost-effective mental health services to children.
School psychologists tailor their services to meet the particular needs of each student and each situation. Although school psychologists utilize many different approaches and work in a variety of settings, most provide a number of core services. These services include consultation, assessment, intervention, prevention, education, research, and health care provision.For more information, click here: What is a School Psychologist?
