International Programs

Feeling CARED in School is an international school project organized by the Laboratory of School Psychology at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, the ISPA School Psychology Trainers Task Force, and the ISPA Student Organizing Committee that encourages students attending elementary and secondary schools in countries around the world to demonstrate how their school can function as a place of care for them.

The main goal of this international initiative is two-fold:

  • To highlight the role of class/school as a place that promotes and fosters children’s resilience especially during trying and exceptional times.
  • To inspire other school communities internationally to demonstrate how students can feel cared for in their school communities.
