  • Skill Level: Intermediate

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. identify evidence-based practices to improve meeting effectiveness.
  2. develop action steps for improving meetings they facilitate.
  3. consult with relevant stakeholders to improve meetings facilitated by other team members.


Inefficient and ineffective meetings have a negative impact on organizational satisfaction. School teams are often unaware of evidence-based practices for effective meetings. This mini-skills session will review extant literature, provide action steps for school psychologists to improve the meetings that they facilitate, and offer tips for consultation with team members for meetings facilitated by others.
