Position on

Child Migrant Separations


The Wisconsin School Psychologist Association endorses the position that child migration separations at the southern border of the United States must cease and that separated families must be reunited expeditiously in order to minimize the risk of trauma reactions among vulnerable children.

The rationale for the position is adopted from the position paper authored by the National Association of School Psychologist Association and other colleague organizations found here:  http://www.nasponline.org/about-school-psychology/media-room/press-releases/nasp-calls-for-end-to-policy-separating-families-at-the-border
