Participants will learn to integrate techniques of the social and emotional learning (SEL) and the school-wide positive behavioral supports (SWPBS) approaches to best prevent and correct behavior problems and develop self-discipline. In targeting how children think, feel, and act, these techniques are applicable for social skills training, classroom management, and comprehensive school-wide discipline (grades K–12). Practical and evidence-based tools also will be presented for conducting needs assessment, selecting interventions, enhancing fidelity of implementation, and evaluating program effectiveness. Lecture, role playing, and discussion will be used, including discussion of the roles of school psychologists in school-wide efforts to improve comprehensive school discipline.
