Tuesday, February 26, 2019
11:00 AM–11:50 AM

  • PMD: 5
  • Skill Level: Intermediate

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. summarize the current state of the systems change literature in school psychology.
  2. identify research needs related to systems change and how this relates to training and implementation in the field.
  3. reflect on their systems change practices and the variables that impact their work in this area.


Although systems change is advocated for in the field, little research exists to support this competency, leading to gaps in training and implementation. This presentation will highlight the systems change literature, along with research and practice needs, such as increased understanding of systems change competencies, barriers, facilitators, and measurement tools. Participants will share relevant examples of their own systems change training and practices and reflect on individual, organizational, and training-related factors that affect these services.
