Bridging the Gaps: In-Depth Group Intervention Training

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 4,7
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Session 7: Psychological Services for Specific Groups of Students

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. evaluate group intervention programs as outlined by the NASP Practice Model.
  2. implement group interventions to develop social and life skills with fidelity as outlined by the NASP Practice Model.
  3. provide family–school collaboration services as outlined by the NASP Practice Model.


Since it has been documented that school psychologists lack competency in intervention implementation and professional standards are not being met, it should follow that the gaps in competency and professional expectations be bridged. This presentation covers in-depth group intervention training in the areas of SEL, externalizing behaviors, trauma and suicide, and cultural considerations. All practitioners desiring to improve their fidelity with group intervention planning and implementation should attend.
