Charles Barrett, PhD, NCSP

Helping future (and current) teachers, administrators, school counselors, school social workers, speech pathologists, and school psychologists understand how constructs such as privilege, implicit bias, and intersectionality affect their service to children, families, schools, and communities.

Anchored by an unwavering commitment to equity and justice, Charles Barrett is a lead school psychologist with Loudoun County Public Schools and an adjunct lecturer in the Graduate School of Education at Howard University.  Actively involved in the training and development of future psychologists, he serves as assistant director, internship supervisor, and chair of the Committee on Diversity for LCPS’ APA-Accredited Doctoral Internship in Health Service Psychology.  His current leadership positions within the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) include being a member of the Nomination and Elections, Publications, and Social Justice Committees; chair of the Multicultural Affairs Committee; and the Virginia Delegate to the NASP Leadership Assembly.

Dr. Barrett’s visit is co-sponsored by the Curry School and the PVI.
