Behavioral Consultation With Teachers: Bridging the Perspective Gap

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 2
  • Skill Level: Introduction
  • Session 11: Consultation and Collaboration With Educators and Parents

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand how teachers conceptualize responding to problem behaviors.
  2. understand the values that guide teachers in their responses to problem behaviors.
  3. improve their ability to consult more effectively with teachers regarding problem behaviors.


To effectively consult with teachers, school psychologists need to be aware of the values that guide teacher responses to behavior problems. A survey of teachers was conducted to explore the values that guide teacher disciplinary responses. Attendees will gain greater knowledge of teacher values surrounding discipline to be able to consult more effectively regarding behavioral management strategies.
